Product Description

SMED Standard Requirements

Crucial Requirements:

  1. Toyota is the role model and the most highly developed example of the potency of systems thinking and action learning in its broadest sense. but why, if the tps is so successful, is toyota along with its circle of suppliers still almost the lone manufacturing example?

  2. Think about management in a conventional mass production operation. First and foremost, the focus is on results, on hitting the numbers: Did you meet the schedule for this day or this week?

  3. Does the production operation unit possess safe production conditions that satisfy the relevant laws, the administrative regulations, and the standards set by the State or by the industry?

  4. If you cannot consistently define lean production, how can you differentiate it from other management concepts and verify its effectiveness to practicing managers?

  5. Having this cycle time to takt time relationship will take care of your production problems in the long run, but what about the short-term problems you might have?

  6. Are there production documents for each phase of production of each software unit, representing a scheduling commitment upon the part of the unit manager?

  7. Is the first prototype or pilot of each hardware unit assigned (in sufficient quantity) to production for a sufficient and continuing period of time?

  8. In a situation where the main source of uncertainty is due to timing of customer orders, which buffering strategy would be expected to perform best?

  9. Computers with plenty and poorly ordered data on hard disk drives slow down. Did you consider directories and files as candidates for 5S?

  10. What is the value of having visual signals for non-cyclical process tracking such as daily maintenance, preventive maintenance, cleaning, 5S, etc.?

Cost/Benefit Analysis; SMED Self-Assessment Justification And Approval Tools:

Purchasing a The Art of Service Self Assessment will spur new ideas, fast track project strategy and advance your professional skills. We’ve developed a set of criteria that will aid in gaining approval and give you the ability to validate and review your Self-Assessment investment:

  • Excluding hired consultants and advisors from top management consulting firms, internal SMED Self-Assessment work is typically undertaken by senior level positions with titles such as Enterprise Architect, Business Process Architects, Business Process Re-engineering Specialists and Business Architects.

    Statistics according to Glassdoor and Indeed tell these positions receive an average basic pay of $125,000. Daily rates of basic pay are computed by dividing an employee's annual pay by 260 days. The daily salary is then derived by dividing the annual salary of $125,000 by 260 days = a daily rate of $480.

  • Top management consulting firms start at $2,000 a day, with rates typically charged up to 40 hours per week.

For a fraction of this the Self-Assessment will make you a SMED domain authority.


Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role… In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

For more than twenty years, The Art of Service's Self-Assessments empower people who can do just that - whether their title is marketer, entrepreneur, manager, salesperson, consultant, business process manager, executive assistant, IT Manager, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are people who watch the process as it happens, and ask the right questions to make the process work better.
