FACILITY AND LAYOUT PLANNING – Clearly determining your position

SWJ-BREILMANN offers a plan for each part (PFEP), staging and rack planning, supply layouts, container and packaging design, carrier concepts and route planning, KANBAN systems and suppy chain management.

Are you planning to expand your production site and wish to use the opportunity to redesign already expanded structures? Or have you established that the flow of stock in your factory is sub-optimal, that there are hold-ups, or that your stock is moving inefficiently back and forth across the factory floor? Layout planning with SWJ can help.
When we develop a new factory layout for you, we re-assess and determine the individual working systems in your company’s value-creation process. This could involve the interaction between multiple buildings on a factory site, but might also focus only on the floor plan of one single warehouse.

In all cases, the most important element is to position the various divisions of production in such a way that ensures the smooth flow of stock and cuts out unnecessary distance in its transportation. This shortens turn-around time and reduces production costs.
We are the masters when it comes to customizing your production process to existing conditions, including giving due consideration to already existing gates, ramps, siding tracks, lifts and elevators, or cranes.

That’s where it gets tricky – for us. You, on the other hand, will soon have in your hands a plan designed to get the best out of your location.
