Identify some of the changes that were implemented in the car racing world to enable such a fast setup time (these include product design, having replacements available where and when needed, devoting human resources to the task, using automation, etc.). How can some of these same ideas be applied to many different setup tasks in companies.
It used to be an issue in car racing to change a tire as it consumer valuable time that could make a difference between winning and losing a race. They changed the design of the car rim that holds the tire and the tire itself so that it can be put fast inside the rim. They also developed new equipment to open and close the screws that keep a tire intact to the car. In a work place, we can generalize these steps by making possible to get rid of all the time wasting opportunities by making effective working hours and training our human resource for maximum output.
