Reducing Costs in your Factory Design Upgrade
Make your Manufacturing Upgrade Work!
Maximizing output is critical for Manufacturers to compete in a worldwide production market. With rising labor and raw material costs, successful manufacturers control costs where they can through planned upgrades to high impact production and cost areas. New production methodologies achieved through redesigned factory layouts have shown huge increases in productivity while cutting labor costs and material waste.
Plant managers, manufacturing engineers, safety directors and other key manufacturing personnel all contribute to the effective redesign and upgrade of manufacturing processes to achieve maximum production payback. With a plan in place, implementation is often difficult when trying to locate and coordinate qualified construction and equipment installation personnel to complete the upgrade as planned.
Project Payback has to cover Project Costs
The productivity improvements and the manufacturing cost reductions have to net the manufacturer more than the COST to complete the improvements. Factored into the cost of the project is the reduction in production in all areas affected while work is being completed. This includes any production areas within construction access paths and all nearby production lines affected by dust and debris during the construction process.
Streamline the Process – Planned team approach
The best way for a manufacturer to control a project to reduce costs, project delays and production downtime is to work with one Industrial Contractor to provide and coordinate the entire manufacturing improvement. The experienced Industrial Contractor will consider all goals and aspects of the project from the manufacturerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s perspective and diligently work to complete the project for maximum results.
Key project considerations include:
- Controlled costs through one Industrial Contractor with multiple trade capabilities
- Planned area access to limit manufacturing disturbance and relocation of existing equipment
- Dust and debris control to nearby operating production lines
- Safety exposure to plant personnel within construction zone
- Construction planning around plant manufacturing schedules to limit production shutdown
- Planned coordination of all demolition, building modifications, production installation, electrical and mechanical controls within shortest project timeline
- Effective communication of any project changes or improvements that arise during project
- Full production and plant maintenance support both during and after project completion to keep the entire manufacturing plant in optimum operating condition
A plant walk through with an Industrial Contractor will show their level of concern for meeting the manufacturer’s project and production goals, and determine whether they are capable of delivering the industrial solutions and multiple construction trades needed to complete the project.
