About SMED Training


Who is SMED Training for?

Single Minute Exchange of Dies might sound limited in its scope. However, while the technique was born in sheet metal stamping operations, its lessons have wider appeal. Generally, SMED deals with process changeovers to switch from manufacturing one part design to another. There was a time when massive dies used by automotive manufacturers required days to change. In this extreme example, large downtime cost necessitated improvement giving birth to faster, single-minute, and even one-touch exchange of dies. Since the lessons of faster process change-over can be applied to any process which switches over to run more than one part design, if you have a process like this, then SMED Training is for you. In our course, Dallas students learn:

SMED Training Course Overview:

SMED training describes Single Minute Exchange of Dies - how Dallas students can increase profit by decreasing process changeover-related downtime. The faster you can set up a new part to be machined, or change over to a completely different part can have big impact on operational efficiency. So, students learn how to study their existing change-over process and speed it up using the 8 traditional techniques:

Segregating external setups from internal.

Converting internal steps to external.

Using standardized function.

Giving preference to clamps over fasteners.

Using intermediate jigs.

Breaking sequential tasks into parallel tasks. SMED is essentially a project management tool in which Gantt Charts can be helpful.

Eliminating the need for adjustments each of which are essentially rework operations.

Evolve towards mechanization.

Our Master Black Belt Instructor was instrumental in getting my department to change the way we think. Achieving success in Lean methods sometimes needs an overhaul of conventional methods and our MBB was the person that can take the concept from an abstract form to reality in the most efficient way possible. The Lean Six Sigma projects that our department conducted helped us reduce costs and streamline our operations.
