Ställtidsreducering: Med hjälp av SMED
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The purpose of this project was to reduce setup time on a press machine at Nitator Hylte AB and to develop a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP), which will serve as a basis for the operators to carry out the work. When the company was contacted so considered site manager that the current change over time was far from optimal and had the desire that it would be reduced by 50%. In connection with the project they were made some boundaries to make the project possible.
The methodology that the authors have followed was Shigeo Shingo theory, Single Minute Exchange of Die (SMED), which assumes that it will change the routine during transitions by making as much preparation work as possible, this is done by analyzes based on observation from observations, videotaping and timings. The resistance that can occur when trying to reduce setup time is the human aspect, this type of resistors most often occurs in the lack of education and lack of good communication.
The results from the project led to a new routine for how the work should be executed during the changeover. During the project diffrent kind of technical solutions was created to simplify the work during the changeover. At the end of the project the aouthers conducted a pilottest to determinate how much time that had been reduced. The Results from the test showed that 50 % of the time had been reduced.
