Plant layout design is the methodical arrangement of equipment, procedures, and services inside a manufacturing facility. The primary goal is to optimize overall Space Efficiency while simultaneously producing the highest quality output in order to maximize production efficiency. This covers every aspect of creating an economical and effective working environment for a Manufacturing Factory Layout Plan, also known as a Factory Plant Layout Design Services.

Tetrahedron has wide range of experience in setting up 100+ Greenfield Plant Layout Projects (New Plant Set-Up) and 150+ Brownfield Plant Layout Projects (Creating space within existing infrastructure, whether through major changes or minor adjustments), helps manufacturing companies in implementing Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).

Lean Plant Layout Development Approach

When developing a Lean Plant Layout design, meticulous planning and careful analysis are required to increase space efficiency. Before designing, it is important to analyze the management requirements and thoroughly understand the production process. Following that, we can proceed with data collection, process mapping, and analysis. So we have a proven approach consisting 8 steps that will help to create 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 (4-5) 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

Advantages of Plant Layout

What is Visual Management System?

Visual Control and Visual Displays are used to visually operate a manufacturing facility called Visual Factory. Visual Management helps employees or workers to get quick information about the workplace and tasks being completed. Benefit of creating visual displays in your organization is to “Encourage workers to feel a feeling of responsibility for the workplace”. So that management can make decisions quickly based on the information.

How to create Visual Management in Manufacturing Business

In order to set up Visual Management in the manufacturing business, we have to train employees/workers, implement new solutions, and ongoing effectiveness monitoring is required. Visual Management involves strategically placing visual cues like signages, color-coded floor markings, and specified work areas to maximize productivity and safety that helps in maximizing productivity and safety.

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
