SMED Changeovers, or Single Minute Exchange of Dies, is a systematic approach to rapid and efficient changeover of production equipment. Initially designed for the quick exchange of machine tooling dies, SMED has expanded to represent any changeover or setup activity in diverse sectors. The methodology aims to cut down setup times to under 10 minutes, the "single minute," thereby significantly reducing downtime and elevating operational throughput. By standardising, simplifying, and refining the changeover process, production units can transition seamlessly between product variations and respond dynamically to varying demand.
