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, Reno students learn:

SMED Training Course Overview:

SMED training describes Single Minute Exchange of Dies - how Reno 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.

Biggest Little City

Excellent choice! Reno's recent growth is from attracting large manufacturing, logistics, and data companies. Examples include Tesla's Gigafactory 1, Apple, Amazon, Google, Switch, Blockchains, Jet.com, eBay, and Wal-Mart. While corporate expansion makes Reno a good city for work-related SMED Training, it is also rich with recreational options. Mt. Rose is a popular snow skiing resort. Pyramid Lake is known for fishing; in-fact, its home to the world's largest Lahontan cutthroat trout. Rock hounders scour local hills in search of quartz and amethyst.

Attending my Six Sigma classes was a great learning experience. Our Master Black Belt had the credentials and the ability to make the classes exciting. Working as a production engineer in the HVAC industry I have been able to apply Six Sigma to problem solving situations saving valuable minutes on the assembly line and increase quality in the fabrication process. I believe with an excellent highly trained instructor everyone will appreciate the Six Sigma discipline.
