Setup Reduction/Total Productive Maintenance

Setup Reduction teaches learners ways to identify and eliminate waste in order to improve quality, reduce production time, and decrease cost: distilling down manufacturing processes to what is value added. Learners begin with an introduction to set-up reduction and lean, including how set-up reduction applies to lean manufacturing. Individual lessons focus on topics like the importance of set-up reduction in small-lot production, the differences between processes and operations, and defining single-minute exchange of dies (SMED).

Total Productive Maintenance takes learners through key topics and skills including the importance of total productive maintenance and describing three principles of preventative maintenance, overall equipment effectiveness, implementing the elements of an autonomous maintenance program, and maintaining equipment including cleaning the equipment, eliminating sources of contamination, training, visual control methods, equipment inspection, and developing and testing standards.
