Single Minute Exchange of Dies (SMED)
Single Minute Exchange of Dies (SMED), is a simple but powerful Lean technique for reducing waste in a manufacturing process. It’s a systematic approach that enables organisations to dramatically reduce set-up time or change-over time. It provides a rapid and efficient way of changing the machine set-up in a manufacturing process from one product to another.
Single Minute Exchange of Dies is known as SMED, Quick Changeover or Set-up Reduction.
