Quick Changeover - The SMED System
Quick Changeover, or SMED, is a Lean manufacturing technique that aims to help organizations reduce waste in their manufacturing process and save time and money by streamlining tasks and improving processes.
These SMED training modules will teach you how Quick Changeover can be used to streamline internal workflows and adapt SMED to improve processes in any industry, such as reducing machine changeover time in a manufacturing setting.
