Achieving Lean Changeover: Putting SMED to Work by John R. Henry

By John R. Henry

Defined because the overall strategy of changing a line or approach from one product to a different, changeover won't in simple terms aid your company enhance caliber and suppleness, however it will store hundreds of thousands and infrequently even tens of millions of greenbacks according to hour.

Achieving Lean Changeover: placing SMED to paintings is concerning the useful implementation of the one minute alternate of die (SMED) philosophy built through Shigeo Shingo at Toyota. even if the e-book is mainly approximately changeover of producing, packaging, and meeting techniques, the final thoughts and examples also are appropriate in lighter industries that require turnover of processes—including airways, hospitals, working rooms, and nutrients service.

Filled with useful examples, the ebook stocks confirmed equipment that may assist you convert changeover downtime to efficient uptime. It explains why decreasing changeover time is critical financially and gives a dependent method that will help you determine and enforce development opportunities.

The writer addresses either the equipment concerns with changeover/ SMED and the linked operational matters corresponding to expenditures, ready occasions, fabric flow, documentation, and product/component layout. He additionally devotes a bankruptcy to discussing, intimately, the best way to calculate the price of changeover downtime, a space that is still a secret to many.

Taking a holistic method of changeover, the textual content encompasses a bankruptcy dedicated to organizing changeover advancements, retaining them heading in the right direction, and constructing and imposing a proper changeover relief application. offering time-tested tools and functional examples from various industries, it will give you the chance to lessen changeover time and price and supply your company with the pliability had to greater fulfill your shoppers in 3 very important dimensions: product kind, responsiveness, and price.
