Title: Capacitation in Single Minute Exchange of Die (SMED) aiming at reduction of setup time from a Systemic perspective.
Knowledge Areas: Lean Manufacturing, Systems Thinking.
Situation: Project Completed.
Description: This training introduced to participants the method used to apply the Single Minute Exchange of Die - SMED, aligned to the concepts of Lean Manufacturing.
To structure of this training, studies were made on the mix of manufactured products in the mortar plant, the growth trends of the variety, as well as a series of four technical visits to the plant.
The first technical visit visualized the production process of the plant and the factors which impact the setup.
At the second meeting was presented an early version of the content that would be shown in the training.
In the third encounter were identified variables related to setup and developed the first version of the Systemic Structure of the relations between the factors that influence the time and frequency of setup and the impacts of this.
In the fourth meeting was made the refinement of the Systemic Structure and the variables were passed to the collection of time series of behavior patterns.
Finally, the capacitation were realized with participants selected by the company and provided a new meeting to answer questions on the topic.
