Designing the right layout

Designing the right layout for operations is about creating conditions for achieving short flow paths and short throughput times with minimal material handling, where everything is clearly visible and marked, combined with effective communication throughout the entire flow.

Part Development offers support in designing effective layouts based on your specific needs and conditions. The starting point for work with layout is a thorough knowledge of your products and processes. With that knowledge as a base, Lean principles are applied in a clear and structured way to form the ideal flow, which is then tailored to suit any planned changes and the limitations of building premises.

Having the right layout often makes it possible to avoid a lot of waste. A focus on flow and value adding means that the potential of even small changes is recognized and utilized, leading to a productive and flexible operation.
