Nowadays, forging industries are adopting new tools and techniques to increase productivity, operational availability and better overall efficiency of the production line. This research describes the improvement in the set-up time process of a straightening cell on Axle Beam line. SMED is one of the many lean production techniques for reducing waste in a manufacturing process. The Single-Minute Exchange of Die (SMED) methodology and other Lean Production tools (5S, Visual Management, Kaizen and Standard Work) were applied to reduce the setup time. As a result, the process setup time was significantly lowered (from 52 to 24 minutes). The percentage reduction in the set-up time 53.85%.

Keywords: Setup Reduction, Single Minute Exchange of Die (SMED), bottleneck, Internal and External Activity.
