Inserting a QDC program usually results from the switch to the lean production method best known as the Just-In-Time (JIT) manufacturing system. JIT is the production of precisely the necessary quantity at exactly the right time. A well-functioning lean production process saves you from having to maintain inventory buffers. With JIT manufacturing, the ideal lot size is one piece. EAS Quick Die Change solutions reduce your manufacturing costs.
