Strategic plant planning and master plan development
Develop sustainable logistics locations for your company with us
Define requirements and avoid waste
Today, sustainable logistics locations are strongly characterized by the ability to deliver in the shortest time possible. Short lead times, increased flexibility with simultaneously reduced use of resources and process costs are requirements that therefore play an important role in our planning. In your plant, all processes in the value stream should be linked with one another in such a way that a flow is created and waste is avoided. Sustainable means planning in the medium and long term. Where should your path lead? Tell us your goals – we will go and shape the way there with you. In addition to the development of strategic goals and corresponding concepts, we define the requirements for your plant, consider all relevant functional areas and carry out the area projection for logistics, production and administration.
Align logistical processes to the production flow - plan logistics locations correctly
In Greenfield planning, we carry out ideal and restriction planning. First of all, it is important to separate yourself from existing restrictions and obstacles: Open yourself to innovations. First, we analyse and determine the vertical range of manufacture. Then, we structure the production. We pursue the goal of optimizing your value stream and production flow. We plan the internal logistical processes and their arrangement based on this, taking into account your production flow. Our focus is on avoiding waste. This includes unnecessary handling steps and work-in-process inventories (WIP). In addition, we plan and integrate sensible decoupling buffers on the one hand to increase productivity and flexibility and on the other hand to reduce reaction times to market requirements. Accordingly, we determine all investment costs for land, construction, logistics and planning costs as well as operating costs for energy, personnel and maintenance.
Do not consider Greenfield and Brownfield planning separately
Everything in flow, everything in terms of your competitiveness
We then develop suitable layout variants, which we discuss together. In the course of planning, we determine how you can design your material flow as efficiently as possible, achieve flexible use of space and a low-inventory material supply, implement optimized and cost-effective warehouse structures and benefit from lean production – with the best possible support from logistics. Which conditions have to be met in the context of plant planning and design as well as production control so that they work together successfully? Our production planners and logistics consultants will investigate this question for you. After selecting the layout variant to be implemented, we will support you in the implementation based on a step-by-step plant development plan. Our consultants create a migration and relocation concept that ensures a smooth transition and should avoid disruptions in ongoing plant operations during the relocation and productive start-up.
Structured to the goal: go your way with us - step by step
The arrangement of machines and workplaces, the mapping of material flows and work processes – all of this needs to be well thought out and planned in line with your strategy so that your location and its plant contribute to the competitiveness of the entire company. Where necessary, we subdivide the overall project into sub-projects and in this way lead you to your goal in a structured manner. As part of the implementation, we take over the project management and accompany you through to a stable process.
Contact us and let us know about your plans. Our consultants are curious about your ideas and goals and look forward to an initial discussion. Just give us a call or send us an email – directly to your contact person or using our contact form. A first step for your strategic plant development.
