Pre-study of factory layout
One fifth of the area in an existing production plant can be released for additional production capacity, through a new layout proposal which optimizes the production and logistics flows. This means more efficient use of existing resources.
ÅF performed a pre-study of the internal logistics in a fish processing plant, which resulted in proposed changes in the production layout. The total potential, to use for increased production, is 4100 sqm which equals 22 % of their factory area.
- We have mapped the current storage structure and new layout proposals have been developed for each area in the factory. We have also developed suggestions on where packaging material should be stored, and where to place the production lines and fridges to create a higher efficiency in the factory, says the project manager from ÅF.
