SMED Training / Set-up Reduction Courses & Consulting
SMED (Single Minute Exchange of Dies) / Set-up Reduction reduces the time it takes to change from one product to another and therefore reduces process downtime. This programme can be delivered as a public, virtual and in-house SMED training course. We also provide SMED / Set-up Reduction consultancy.
The following course will equip participants with the skills and knowledge required to reduce set-up times as they learn-through-doing as they apply the principles to a ‘real’ set-up within your organisation and deliver a ‘real’ improvement on the 2 day programme option. On the 1 day programme the principles are applied to our own set-up reduction example.
Reduced set-up time on 3-axis tube bending machine from 37 minutes to 6 minutes (i.e. 84% reduction) through method improvement alone.
