If there are stops, he has to deter-mine their causes and remedy them quickly. ProductivityGood flexibility QualityProduction flexibility is the ability to manufacture smallbatches easily. The best way of achieving this is to reduce thetime needed to change jobs.To guarantee a good flexibility and a high production rate, thejob change phase must be as short as possible so that themachine downtime is kept to a minimum.
