Change downtime to uptime
Lean manufacturing tools such as kanban, 5S, just-in-time
and OEE will make your plant more efficient and are definitely worthwhile. Even
a percentage point gain or two efficiency gain will save tens or hundreds of
thousands of dollars in a year.
They are not enough.
Not even perfect efficiency will help you when the line is not
The main cause of downtime in most plants is
changeover between products. Even small improvements bring big yield big results. Ten extra minutes of additional daily runtime adds 40 hours of annual production capacity.
Smite this downtime with the meanest quick tool in
the lean toolbox: SMED.
SMED smashes downtime time by Eliminating, Simplifying, Externalizing
and Executing. Or as John Henry likes to call it: "The
SMED improves OEE (Overall Equipment Efficiency) by dramatically increasing system availability.
John Henry wrote the book on putting SMED to work and is world renowned as
the Changeover Wizard. His workshops and and other services will launch you on the path to truly lean manufacturing.
