Quick Changeover and Single Minute Exchange of Dies (SMED) Overview is a course designed to help manufacturing employees learn about techniques that reduce process changeover times from one product to another. Specific techniques are discussed to reduce equipment down time (waiting waste) due to the changeover process resulting in greater productivity and throughput. Examples are shown to speed up alignment of fixtures and methods are discussed to achieve changeover times on machines to less than 10 minutes (SMED).
There are no prerequisites for this course.
Class attendance is an essential part of the education process and participants in TEEX courses are expected to attend all class sessions and field exercises. This course requires participants to attend a minimum of 80% of the class hours as a component of successful course completion. During the course, your instructor will review any additional attendance requirements, for example a field exercise that cannot be missed.
