Looking for video of Formula 1 pitstop | 14 September, 2004

I want to show our production that changing over the pick&place line can be done much faster than we do now, but only if we organize things in a different way. What I would like to discuss with the operators is how Formula 1 teams are doing their changeover during the pitstop, and what we can learn from that. Does anyone know where I can get a video that shows this process? Downloadable is preferred, but all recomendations are appreciated.

Not quite what you asked for, but it's pretty good http://www.ehow.com/how_13510_understand-whats-happening.html

'Google' "race pitstop"

Hi,

The thing with Formula 1 is that they can afford to throw innumerable bodies at tasks (i.e. 8 people to change 4 tyres, 1 to hold a jack, 1 or 2 to refuel, 1 to hold a stop sign, 1 to hold a fire extinguisher, 1 with a stop watch, and the bloke who stands there in shades looking cool..).

The thing about electronics manufacturing is we can't, as more people = less competitive.

Saying that drilling those that you do have to do things methodically, accurately & in a timely manor can't be bad.

Good luck,

Rob.

I'm a Production Supervisor in a food plant in California. I'm looking for the same training video I once saw. It is very short and sweet and right to the point and opens the eyes and minds of the workers. If you find it please tell me where you found it at jledford@diamond.com Thanks, Jeff

A couple of years ago, the airline SAS (Scandinavian Airlines System) introduce this "Formula 1" concept in Sweden. They did it very succesfully. Many people misunderstand the Formula 1 concept; thinking that you need a lot of people to do "things" and also not capable of enything else. On the contrary to this; less people is necessary, but the job they are doing is extremely effective and the their job-function is more versatile. This is even more interesting because the workers now is a part of the team and are happy to do a good job in an efficient way. There are more companies out there who do things in the "Formula One" way. As for the Formula 1 video; I don't think it is proper to give away such a link nor the video, since there might be a copyright issue, if using it in a commercial way.
