Reducing Changeover:

Key in Enhancing Customer Value

April 14-15, 2016, 9am to 5pm


An important tool in LEAN is the Single Minute Exchange of Die (SMED) or Quick Changeover Method which guides people in the organization on how to implement practical set-up reduction programs whether inside manufacturing or in administrative processes.


The SMED technique provides a step-by-step approach in helping people identify activities that can be done outside and inside the changeover process.  It also covers tools on how to eliminate if not reduce the non-value and value activities within the set-up practice.

The 2-day training program will utilize a combination of short lectures and simulation workshops to help demonstrate and apply SMED in their respective business. ProTime Software ( will also be used to provide easier and more accurate way to do method study thus allowing more effort into analysis (improvement/design of work). Time studies can be performed through the use of video, or in real-time.
