Site masterplan and process optimisation to deliver step-change in throughput and storage capacities to support production increases and reduce off-site storage and double-handling.
Stockholding of finished goods & production materials already was in excess of the constrained site capacity
Shuttling of product to off-site storage, and subsequent repatriation and merging into customer loads was adding cost into the supply chain
Investment in the site including new production lines would impact throughput and reduce storage footprint
Current State Assessment – Working closely with logistics and production teams, review of current and proposed operations with detailed assessment of “to-be” flows, on-site capacity and off-site movements
Storage Development – Modelling a range of detailed storage options including new facility construction. Development of yard and site flow options.
Process Development – Analysing movements across the site – feeding production lines and finished goods outputs to create new flows that ensure site safety as well as optimum productivity
Business Case Development– Providing input into the Kronenbourg business case including detailed 7 stage transition timeline, costs and benefit assessments
Our detailed report & outline business case identified how the site could deliver growth & reduce operating cost:
Elimination of off-site storage and handling costs
New facility and site layouts that support production growth
