AVIX SMED provides a very intuitive approach to the SMED principle within lean production, i.e. no special skills are required. This facilitates the work with more in-depth analysis of the internal set-up with possibility to find the best work method. Standard Time setting also makes it possible to simulate the proposed improvements to get an idea of the outcome in increased productivity.
Internal and External activities
Filming of the setup eliminates the risk of missing important issues in the analysis. The analysis in AviX SMED is quickly created even at long (> 1hr) set-ups and provides direct separation in internal and external set-up. The film also facilitates communication within improvement groups and with other areas in your organization.
The simple handling of various resources, allowing several operators to work in parallel with different tasks, makes it possible to analyze set-ups with multiple machines. With built-in logic, tasks starting or ending before another task can be separated. It also becomes easy to see the time spent on various tasks and see the actual time of the necessary tasks and problems.
