Single Minutes Exchange of Dies (SMED) provides a quick and efficient way of converting a manufacturing process from running the current product to running the next product. The benefits of SMED include speeding both work in process and return on investment for capital equipment. All well and good, but many companies find it hard to implement SMED. That is where this workshop can help.
