What is Lean: setup reduction?
Lean: setup reduction is the process of reducing changeover time (i.e., from the last good piece of the previous run to the first good piece of the next run). Since setup activities add no marketable form, fit, or function to the product, they are by definition non-value adding. By reducing setup time toward Single Minute Exchange of Dies (SMED), more setups can be completed each day. SMED is a systematic approach to reducing changeover times to less than ten minutes. This allows batch size reduction, which is critical for flow and improves manufacturing flexibility.
