SIRF Roundtables presents
Operational Excellence Roundtable
Common Interest Workgroup
SMED - The Nuts & Bolts of Reducing Setup Time
Proudly hosted by Arnott's


SIRF Roundtables in New South Wales currently comprises in excess of 50 progressive organisations that are willing to network and share their best practices in a peer to peer learning environment, specialising in Operational Excellence, Supply Chain and Industrial Maintenance.

‘Common Interest Work Group’ (CIWG) events are for technical specialists looking to discuss with peers, specific topics they are working on, in and around their field of excellence.

One of the many tools of LEAN relates to quick changeovers. The faster the changeover times, the less downtime of equipment, the more agile we can be and the less disruption to flow.

While the market is increasingly demanding more customised products, manufacturers are under constant pressure to reduce costs and customer lead times. Non-fulfilment of orders more frequently results in losing business to the competition. Combine these factors with the high cost of inventory and the need to increase productivity across the value stream, and it becomes obvious that mastering quick changeovers is essential to an organization’s survival.

What are the key planning steps needed for success and what needs to be reviewed to ensure continuous improvements are maintained?

Come along and share your successes and learn from others who have benefited from applying SMED principles.

This event is ideal for:

Anyone who is interested in reducing setup times on their equipment and improving their value stream.
