The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated SMED specific requirements:

STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with…

  • The latest quick edition of the SMED Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals…

STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 988 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which SMED improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 988 standard requirements:

  1. Think about management in a conventional mass production operation. First and foremost, the focus is on results, on hitting the numbers: Did you meet the schedule for this day or this week?

  2. Does the production operation unit possess safe production conditions that satisfy the relevant laws, the administrative regulations, and the standards set by the State or by the industry?

  3. If you cannot consistently define lean production, how can you differentiate it from other management concepts and verify its effectiveness to practicing managers?

  4. Are there production documents for each phase of production of each software unit, representing a scheduling commitment upon the part of the unit manager?

  5. Is the first prototype or pilot of each hardware unit assigned (in sufficient quantity) to production for a sufficient and continuing period of time?

  6. In a situation where the main source of uncertainty is due to timing of customer orders, which buffering strategy would be expected to perform best?

  7. What is the value of having visual signals for non-cyclical process tracking such as daily maintenance, preventive maintenance, cleaning, 5S, etc.?

  8. If the marginal cost of production is diminishing as more units of output are produced, what can you say about the marginal product of labor ?

  9. When the safety stock requirements of several warehouses are consolidated to a single location the total required stock is likely to increase?

  10. In a situation where the main source of uncertainty is due to quantity of demand, which buffering strategy would be expected to perform best?

Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

Results

With this Three Step process you will have all the tools you need for any SMED project with this in-depth SMED Toolkit.

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose SMED projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, ‘What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?’

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that – whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc… – they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make SMED investments work better.

This SMED All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person:
