Competitive companies which are guided by the productivity enhancement employ the lean tools such as single-minute exchange of die (SMED) to reduce the setup time. This study presents a review of the state-of-the-art literature including 130 articles related to single-minute exchange of die and proposes a classification and analysis of the reviewed works. The classification was based on categories, areas, research methods, tools, implementation, results, and countries. This review emphasizes lean tools within the single-minute exchange of die technique. To this end, the study allows dissemination of the knowledge gained from the literature on single-minute exchange of die, and it presents the classified articles that used the Shingo stages in the implementation of the setup reduction.
