SMED : Single Minute Exchange of Die

Training program

Interest, objective :

Reduce time between shifts on a "pilot" production chain / machine and thereby do the same to the other machines.

This training answers the following questions :

 How to reduce stock in production ?
 How to avoid bottlenecks ?
 How to involve the operators and train them to change shift quickly ?
 What investment in the machine will produce the best effect ?

Target businesses and sectors :

Anyone in production

Results :

 Substantial reduction in starting up and stopping machinery,
 Modificiation of the machines, the associated parts and of the operational methods.

Recent examples :

 halving time on a press in 7 months
 Changeover time reduced in one year from 5hr to 2hr30 for an automated high speed machine cell (HSM) in the aeronautic sector
