Indeed, we might well imagine that this is the principal reason for favoring large-lot production on the shop floor. With traditional setup procedures, large-lot production seems the easiest and most effective way to minimize the undesirable effects of setup operations.

A number of thoughts followed in rapid succession. On a conference-room blackboard I listed eight techniques for shortening setup times. Using this new concept, we were able to achieve the three-minute goal after three months of diligent ef fort. In the hope that any setup could be performed in under ten minutes, I named this concept "single-minute exchange of die," or SMED. SMED was later adopted by all Toyota plants and continued to evolve as one of the principal elements of the Toyota Production System.
