Set-up Reduction. Known also as Quick Changeover, is a systematic approach that enables organizations to build on the principles of the Single Minute Exchange of Die (SMED) system. It dramatically reduces changeover time.
S.M.E.D. is a powerful tool. It reduces downtime due to setups and changeovers. The name suggests the method by which equipment can be changed, from one product to the next, in the most effective way possible. It also ensures the shortest possible time.
SMED programs effectively identify, and separate the changeover process, into key operations. External Setup comprises operations, which can be done while the machine is running before the changeover process begins. Internal Setup takes place when the equipment is stopped.
