Quick Changeover & Set-Up Reduction

How to implement a programme of rapid changeover.

Long changeover times are a major cause of over-producing which in turn leads to excess inventory, back-orders (stock-outs), long lead times and inflexibility. By reducing changeover and set-up times you will significantly reduce costs and increase your competitive edge.

Practical Training - The system used in this course covers SMED (Single Minute Exchange of Dies) and follows a six stage approach to changeover reduction, most of which can be achieved with minimal expense. It will drive you to measure changeovers in minutes, or even seconds, rather than hours, or even days.

Real Results - At the end of each unit there are actions to complete so by the end of the course you will not only understand how to reduce changeover times you will have already implemented and realised the benefits.

Key Points Covered

  1. Just six steps to seeing substantial improvements to your changeover and set up times
  2. Understand and implement the changes required to reduce costs
  3. Improve production flow and capacity
  4. Action-orientated - worksheets and actions for you to complete as you progress in the course enabling you to deliver real results.
