In a high volume manufacturing, fast equipment setups play an important part in maximizing the capability of our equipment. With the increasing product demands and shifting from weekly to daily scheduling sales order, its is expected that production line will be “jerked” to meet the needs of our customers. This is where Single-Minute Exchange of Die (SMED) application is necessary. To implement SMED in Manila, a core team was formed to drive this program. The team was composed of industrial and equipment engineers from different manufacturing operations with support from Technical Training. Focus was initially set on critical stations that have long setup times, With the application of SMED, improvements were substantial with initial data showing reduction of setup time ranging from 25% to as high as 85%. With the reduced setup time, production flexibility expanded as it was able to afford more Frequent product mix changes. In addition, machine utilization and equipment capacity went up with the reduced setup time
