Coalesce of Automation and SMED to Enhance SUR?A Case Study

Dr. R. Saravanan, K. Mothilal


Abstract: Globalization increases the customization of products. The firms produce a wide variety of jobs with smaller lot size to meet the requirements. The frequency of changeovers increases due to variety of lots involved. The Set-Up time Reduction (SUR) is a crucial factor to boost up the production rate and profit. Single Minute Exchange of Dies (SMED) is a powerful methodology and commonly encountered for SUR. Many works were reported to enhance SUR by combining SMED with other methods. This work deals with coalesce of automation and SMED to enhance SUR in a press shop. Ishikawa diagram plotted for deploying the possibilities for implementing SMED. Pareto analysis employed to identify the most influenced factors. Time study employed for measuring the setup activities. Engineering and technology employed for automation along with SMED methodology. Reduction of SUR achieved 52.4 %, which enhance the net cost of effectiveness INR 4, 78, 820 per month


Keywords: Set-Up time, SUR, SMED, Automation, Time study, Pareto Diagram, Ishikawa Diagram
