Total Productive Maintenance and Quick Changeover (SMED) Workshop


This course will teach the principles of Total Productive Maintenance and Quick Changeover (SMED). TPM and SMED are two essential ingredients in a lean manufacturing program. The TPM system addresses production operation with a team-based proactive program. It helps eliminate losses from breakdowns, defects, and accidents and improves Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). The SMED system for quick changeover is a three-phase system aimed at reducing changeover time on equipment; this allows for smaller batches and less inventory throughout the value stream.
