Abstract [en]

In today's society there are strict requirements for manufacturing companies and they have to

be efficient to maintain and increase their profitability, thus meeting the competition that

exists. Effective transitions are becoming increasingly important for companies as customers

demand a variety of their products, therefore, it is imperative to keep the setup time low in

order to be able to offer customers the quality and variety demanded.

Set Time Reduction means reducing changeover times at the machine without reducing

production capacity. The SMED-method helps to get a better understanding of how, through

a structured approach, companies can reduce setup times at the machine.

The company DS Smith had a need to get control of their set-up times and get a structured

approach that operators can work with. The authors' assignments / thesis has been to chart

the current situation across 8 converting machines available at DS Smith in Värnamo, and

then get an overview of how operators are working in the current situation. In order to map

the current situation, the authors made use of qualitative studies, such as interviews and

observations. They then selected one of the eight machines for the implementation of the

SMED-method in five steps, where the authors have used literature studies and article search

to gain knowledge on the subject and achieve results that were reliable.

The work has resulted in an approach that operators can use in the future and according to

reducing changeover times at the machines.
