When the first lot was completed, a valve was opened in die auxiliary vat and the preheated dye was allowed to flow into the dyeing vat. It thus became possible to eliminate the delay caused by heating the dye. This solution also had the effect of improving product quality by producing crisper colors. Previously, there had been only one thread rack for each vat. When a lot was finished, the thread was removed from the rack, and a second lot of thread was installed on it. We were able to further reduce setup time by installing a second rack that was preloaded and switched with the first as soon as processing of the first lot was completed.

Workers removed the old die and then started rushing about all over die place. I asked the operator what was going on. He replied, "One of die mounting bolts for the new die is missing. " "When you find it," I said, "you'll come back to the die, won't you? " "All right," he replied. " • I sat down by the machine and waited. After more than an hour, the operator rushed back, drenched with sweat and brandishing a bolt in his right hand. " "No," he answered. "I didn't actually find it.
