Quicker Changeovers (SMED)

This course in our series of Briefing Days presents an overview of productivity principles.

Originating in manufacturing, SMED was aimed at minimising the time to change tool sets, hence Single Minute Exchange of Dies. Many changes involve much more than a few minutes’ time – hours or even days. In sectors other than manufacturing there are often regular make ready/preparation changeover activities, which can benefit from this proven methodology. With high volumes of short setups or long, repetitive setups huge savings are possible, with little or no additional investment.
