The app is useful to all those who want to reduce the changeover times through SMED method (Single Minute Exchange Die) formalized and implemented by Toyota with Shigeo Shingo, consultant at JMAC at that time.
Therefore, it is for professionals and trainees in Operational Excellence and Continuous Improvement like: internal and external consultants, confirmed Green and Black Belts, students and trainees.
Optismed measures and assess simultaneously the work of several Machines and Operators with just one smartphone or tablet. It is settled for SMED activities.
Have you ever thought how much lost time until you are ready to find solutions to reduce a changeover time through SMED!
You must record videos for often several changeovers, to download them into PC, breakdown in small pieces and copy into Excel file, get tables and diagrams one by one, summarize and make reports under Word and Power Point.
Lot of errors, delays and back and forth occur during a such a heavy process. And when 2or more Operators are working in parallel on several machines is often impossible to keep them together in the camera eye. Happy you found solutions to improve the C/O duration, you have now to start again the process in order to validate the gain!
In a sentence, you will spend much less time for the preparation for SMED application, The problem of measuring the operations of several Operators and Machines working in parallel is solved as the application provides multiple timers running in the same time
No more need to breakdown and copy in the Excel file as you have done it much faster into the application before starting the measurement And for future recordings of the same change, there is no need to repeat it because you reutilize the existing model. You really save a lot of time
