Quick changeovers are critical for organizations that want to implement just-in-time or one-piece flow production, since it makes it possible to switch operations and avoid making non-value-added steps for the patient. The Single-Minute Exchange of Die (SMED) system is one of the most effective approaches for shortening changeover time and reducing wasteful activities. Part of the Lean Tools in Healthcare series, this book will improve understanding of this tool. Presented in practical terms, this book, through the use of margin assists, defines key terms, includes healthcare examples, and supplies detailed how-to instructions.


Chapter 1 : Getting Started
Chapter 2 : Important Terms and Concepts
Chapter 3 : Getting Ready for SMED
Chapter 4 : Stage 1 : Separating Internal and External Setup
Chapter 5 : Stage 2 : Converting Internal Setup to External Setup
Chapter 6 : Stage 3 : Streamlining All Aspects of the Setup Operation
Chapter 7 : Reflections and Conclusions
