    Lean Plant Layout Development Approach

    When developing a Lean Plant Layout design, meticulous planning and careful analysis are required to increase efficiency. Before starting, we have to collect all the requirements and thoroughly understand the production process. So we have a proven approach consisting 8 steps that will help to make the plant layout design conceptual with optimized output, reduce expenses, and foster a secure work environment.

    Plant Layout 8 Steps Detailed Approach

    Advantages of Tetrahedron's Lean Layout Approach

    A Plant / Factory layout design should be valid for at least 5 Yrs.

    Factory Layout Design is a critical investment for any manufacturing company, and a flow-focused – effective layout impacts business performances and profitability. Once a layout is frozen it’s almost impossible or very cost-intensive to change the layout especially after the civil works are completed.

    Tetrahedron considers these facts and tries to create multiple (more than 10) simulation wherein the client can select the best possible layout with existing business requirements as well as all possible future plans.

    3D Plant Layout

    Visualize how 3D simulations created by Tetrahedron works as a perfect bridge between the Concept Level Layout and Final Post Construction layout. Tetrahedron uses multiple software for layout design and 3D simulations, that helps the clients to visualize how the future plant is going to look like post-implementation of Lean Layout with (GMP) Good Manufacturing Practices.

    Business & Operational Performance Planning

    Tetrahedron takes into consideration lean manufacturing practices and design layouts that will help to –

    (1) Improve Line Balancing

    (2) Improve Manpower Utilization

    (3) Plan and Optimise Inventory

    (4) Calculate Manpower Requirements

    (5) Reduce Material Handling Equipment Requirement

    (6) Improve Space Efficiency

    (7) Good Manufacturing Practices

    Case Study

    Lean Layout In Fettling Operation

          (Leading Global Automotive Part Manufacturer)

    Challenges 

    Before Tetrahedron–

    • Operating as a batch process fettling operation leading to huge  WIPs 
    • Frequent delivery failures due to unavailability of finished goods.

    Approaches 

    Tetrahedron conducted a Time & Motion Study for Shot-blasting to painting operation of the fettling line with a target to develop a Lean Line with 5 years capacity projection. The result achieved in 6 months.

    Results

    • 3 Shifts (24 Hrs) operation reduced to 19 Hrs
    • Line Balancing Implemented – Sequential Flow of Goods, FIFO
    • Line formation with exact manpower requirement with projections
    • Identified 20+ Simple Automation
    • Multiple Operation by single workman by formation improvement
    • WIP reduced by 50%

    Green Field Layout Of Glazing Division

     (India’s Largest UPVC  Manufacturer (Bhiwadi))

    Challenges

    Before Tetrahedron-

    • High Cost due to High Manual Manufacturing
    • Low Productivity  due to non standardized product
    • High WIP because of Material Handling
    • High Manual Packaging leading to high labor Costs

    Approaches 

    Tetrahedron studied the entire production line and helped to identify at least 43 opportunities to implement automation. With this in mind, 17 high-impact projects were taken on.

    Results 

    • 36% Manpower Reduction
    • Ideation and Implementation of end to end Material Handling
    • Material Handling breakages reduced by 70%
    • 40% Line Productivity Enhancement
