The design of a production system includes those aspects necessary to define the production process before it is started up. Amongst these stand out the plant layout, storeroom design, identification of production processes and their design, identification of production processes and their capacity, and activities for distributing the final products.
The study of the layout of manufacturing plants includes design by optimization techniques and analysis by simulation of various alternatives, as well as the possibility of incorporating different compatible formats by the organization of the productive process, oriented at product or process, together with a study of factory cells or advanced manufacturing systems.
Warehouse design and management
Warehouse design tackles the configuration of warehouses and the localization of materials, both row materials and various semi-made ones and finished products, paying special attention to picking and its link to production activities.
Material handling processes
Study of the supply of materials, production processes, and material management, together with transport activities within the production plant.
