Each Quick Changeover for Operators Learning Package includes the following components:

  • A Leader's Guide
  • 5 copies of Quick Changeover for Operators:The SMED System
  • A CD filled with additional presentation materials
  • A copy of A Revolution in Manufacturing: The SMED System, by Shigeo Shingo

    The Quick Changeover for Operators Learning Package is designed to give a team leader everything needed to lead study groups on Quick Changeover, or the SMED System. This is the process of readying a production line for a different process or product. In many plants it takes hours, even days to make the change. The SMED System is about turning those hours of changeover time into minutes, even seconds. The idea behind the package is to lead workers (within their work own environments and teams) through a planned series of study and application sessions.

    The Learning Package does the following:

  • Provides the foundation for launching a full-scale implementation process
  • Encourages workers to get actively involved in their own learning process
  • Provides immediate practical skills for participants
  • Offers a flexible curriculum that adapts to unique audience requirements
  • Furnishes the tools to develop your own in-house education program for operators
