Layout and Material Flow Optimization

Optimize your Facility Layout and Material Flow



What is Layout Optimization?
 
Facility Layout Optimization is the evaluation of multiple layout scenarios to design the optimum layout that reduces material handling costs, improves throughput, minimizes space requirements, and lowers energy bills.

Our layout optimization services are provided by industrial engineering consultants who are also experts in related productivity improvement methods such as lean & six sigma, simulation, ergonomics, and work measurement. As a result, PMC clients benefit from our overall productivity and quality improvement mindset when they engage PMC's layout optimization services.


          

Why Hire PMC for Layout Optimization Services?

PMC's industrial engineers and facility layout designers have extensive experience in systematic layout planning and material flow analysis. Our expertise includes:

 
 FactoryCAD at work    

Layout optimization starts with a 2d CAD drawing. It involves definition of locations for machines, work centers, and storage areas and definition of material flow paths. Layout optimization software tools enable industrial engineers and designers to iterate through the optimization process during the upfront facility design process and avoid unnecessary time and cost of making changes once the facility is in operation.

Once the facility is in operation and proper optimization has been implemented, the advantages include

 

•   Reduced MH equipment costs
•   Lowered inventory levels
•   Optimized MH workforce
•   Simplified MH planning and control
