Participants will learn how to apply SMED and identify internal and external set-up operations. Participants will apply what they are learning to a machine in their company’s facility and will demonstrate the power of SMED to achieve a 30% improvement in changeover time in less than 2 days.
During the workshop the students will apply what they are learning using a particular machine in their facility. The changeover process will be observed and documented by the participants and used as a case study to apply the principles during the workshop.
