Plant Floor Design

Plant floor design is key to the creation of an efficient production environment; however, when businesses lay out a new plant, change the layout of an existing facility or add a new assembly line, many enterprises underestimate how many factors they need to consider. Organisations tend to be dictated by equipment or material flow, instead of designing facilities around their customer expectations and taking heed of lean principles, such as 5S, Visual Management, Kaizen and Kan-Ban. This case study focuses on how workstations, parts bins and equipment should be arranged to optimise flow, minimise waste and boost productivity.

The Challenge

Well planned floor design the key to efficient productivity. Many underestimate how many factors need to be considered, this case study focusses on how effective, flexible design can minimise waste and boost productivity.

The Results

  • Productivity increases of 70%
  • Flagship, world class factory created.
85% increase in efficiency
