Dimensioning tailored to the material flow with optimal capacity utilisation:
With well-thought-out layout and material-flow planning, companies design their internal logistics system in an economically efficient manner. At the same time, subsequent investments in additional conveyor or storage technology are avoided. In the optimisation measures, LOGSOL considers all the material-flow relationships holistically – from goods receipt to the storage and picking areas to goods issue. As part of a comprehensive analysis, the premises of alternative material-flow and layout concepts are taken into account before the ideal solution is specified in detailed planning. On the basis of movement data and projections, LOGSOL creates transport matrices and visualises layouts using innovative 3D planning software. Thanks to this process, companies benefit from clearly structured, sustainable solutions, with a material flow orientated towards the value stream.
Structured planning flow, from rough planning to detailed planning
Plant structure planning
Modular location planning, taking flexibility, adaptability and future expansion options into account
Logistical function concept
Derivation of the necessary functional surfaces from the process analysis: what surfaces are there, what function do they have and which surfaces are linked to each other?
Assessing the surface requirements using various equipment options
Material-flow and layout planning
Development of the block layout in variants, balancing key material-flow data and optimisation regarding material and information flow as well as local restrictions (e.g. building cubature)
Planning of target processes and assessment of process changes based on staff requirement analyses
Assessment and decision
Qualitative (e.g. utility analyses, risk analyses) and quantitative assessment (cost determination, benchmarks, business case studies) as well as joint decision with the customer on the preferred variant
