1. A method for providing an instruction on setup changeover work executed at changing a type of product in a component mounting system which produces a mounting substrate by mounting an electronic component on a substrate by a component mounting apparatus comprising a component supply unit in which a plurality of parts feeders for supplying components are arranged, and a component mounting mechanism which picks up the electronic component from the component supply unit and conveys and places the electronic component on the substrate,
said method comprising:
storing feeder arrangement data including current arrangement information corresponding to a current arrangement state of the parts feeders currently arranged in the component supply unit and first arrangement information corresponding to a first arrangement state for a first substrate type scheduled to be produced;
deriving, from the stored current arrangement data and the stored first arrangement data, work instruction information which defines setup changeover work necessary to change an arrangement state of the parts feeders in the component supply unit from the current arrangement state to the first arrangement state based on the current feeder arrangement information and the first feeder arrangement information; and
displaying the derived work instruction information on a display screen,
wherein the work instruction information comprises a plurality of pieces of unit work information,
wherein each of the plurality of pieces of unit work information includes kind information and feeder state information,
wherein the kind information indicates a kind of execution operation in the setup changeover work,
wherein the feeder state information indicates states before and after execution of work on the parts feeder targeted in the setup changeover work,
wherein the plurality of pieces of unit work information are displayed on the display screen so as to be arranged in work sequence to be executed,
wherein the component mounting system comprises a feeder identification unit which identifies the parts feeder arranged in the component supply unit, and
wherein if the feeder identification unit detects that a work result of the executed setup changeover work differs from the displayed work instruction information, unit work information necessary to modify the work result to a correct work result based on the work instruction information is newly derived and additionally displayed on the display screen.
