Increasing the speed of the product change-over process is critical by implementing the Single Minute Exchange of Dies (SMED) effectively. The smallest activity variation between operators, activity speed, and process accuracy are identified research targets. This research was developed in the electronic component industry, where the Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control (DMAIC) and Hierarchy Task Analysis (HTA) methods can describe the most crucial and key activities. Therefore, it takes accuracy and reliability between operators to carry out this activity. This paper presents the acceleration of the product change-over process by developing an automated non-contact inspection method in the assembly area using a vision system. The results of the study illustrate that the change-over process can be carried out in single-digit minutes (7 minutes), or reduced by 81%, and the speed of change-over activities between operators is the same.
