SMED, Lean Tools, Setup Time Reduction


The Single Minute Exchange of Die (SMED) is one important lean tool to reduce waste and improve flexibility in manufacturing processes, allowing a considerable lot size reduction and manufacturing flow improvements. The applicability of the proposed SMED approach can be seen by reviewing various research papers, which shows how SMED combined with various lean tools can help in its successful implementation, this will enable reduction in setup time, through company's internal resources reorganizations without the need for significant investment. This paper describes the improvement of the setup process and hence the time reduction and optimization when applied a lean tool for manufacturing improvement.
