So what if you wanted to tune your production line like Hennessy tunes a Viper.
The first step would be to understand operating context. A drag car is completely different from a track car.
- What are you using the line to do?
- What is the full capability of the equipment and parts in the production line?
- Are the parts talking reliably with the whole? Are they using that information to improve system output?
- Do the changes give the results we expected?
So in the end you need to understand your conditions, capability and components to get from minivan performance to race day ready production.
