In this project we will see the application of SMED (Single Minute Exchange Dye) a Lean Manufacturing tool in the Medical Device Industry, and how it helps to reduce the time of changeover in a machine. One of the benefits of this tool is to help manufacturing to increase the OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) of the machine thru the increase in utilization.
