Single Minute Change of Die (SMED) Introduction
SMED is one of the lean production methods for reducing waste in a manufacturing process. It provides a rapid and efficient way of converting a manufacturing process from running the current product to running the next product. This rapid changeover is the key to reducing production lot sizes and thereby improving the flexibility.
As a result,SMED is widely considered and used by manufacturers providing products with
multiple species and small batch.
