SMED, Productivity, Non Value Adding (NVA),



Life is a race if you don’t chase it someone is definitely chase you and will go ahead. Hence to survive in today’s business world every manufacturer has to have some idea and plans for their betterment. Market scenario has nearly change after 1990’s that every manufacturer must go through the global competition, demand for short lead time, demand for variety, small lot sizes and also proliferation of OEM’s. If we have to increase the frequency of delivery without compromising the quality Single Minute Exchange of Dies is the answer. Single Minute Exchange of Dies is not only apply to bottleneck machines it is to be implemented company wide and aim must be to bring all setup time to less than ten minutes in this paper some techniques, basic procedure, problems faced by companies are discussed and solution for them are suggested.
