Lean Facility Layout
Lean technology is your ultimate solution if you are looking to transform and improve your business by streamlining processes, meeting your production needs, fulfilling orders and meeting demand, minimising waste, enhancing the work environment, and saving time. Lean principles are a sure way to help you stay at the top of your competitors within your industry.
TXM Lean Solutions has positioned itself as a premium lean solutions provider in Europe and across North America. We have helped many enterprises transform their businesses for the better, as our many case studies ascertain.
Lean Technology in Facility Layout
Lean principles are the right solution, whether you are setting up a new factory, moving into a new one, or just changing the layout of your current facility. TXM’s solution for factory layout puts everything into consideration to produce the flow you desire within your facility when handling raw materials, work in process (WIP), finished product, consumables, people movement, information, and waste.
Lean Facility Layout Case Studies
TMX has worked with and transformed business’ facility layout, yielding remarkable results as shown in the cases studies below:
Fortress Systems Pty. Ltd
The Melbourne-based resistors manufacturer relocated half their business to a new facility, occupying more space than they needed. Their plant plan was poor, lacking a clear production flow. Productivity was poor, and the plant was disorganised.
TXM implemented a factory layout that reduced lead times from 16-18 weeks to 10-12 weeks. The layout also improved space utilisation, reducing one production cell from 25m2 to 1.5m2.
Heavy Truck Manufacturer –Improved Layout and Reduced Lead Times
The client was a heavy truck manufacturer who was enjoying growth after recovering from the 2009-2009 financial crisis, but space was becoming a limiting factor. Long lead times in folding, welding, and assembly were also an issue. TMX improved the client’s facility layout, saving around 1000m2 of space for an additional production cell.
A Global Leading Packaging Supplier
The client giant packaging supplier was struggling with long lead times and poor quality and supply requirements that translated into excess WIP, low productivity, and high customer returns. Upon the implementation of TMX lean facility layout and enterprise principles, the client realised a remarkable improvement. Finished goods inventory was down 32%, lead times reduced by 28%, saving 44% of plant space, 75% reduction in monthly backlogs, and 25% reduction in quality defects and rejects.
High Technology Manufacturer
Growth and competition present challenges in increasing output and reducing cost; this is what the client was going through. TXM was able to redesign the client’s production line to reduce: final test time by 80%, packaging time by 90%, sub-assembly production time by over 50%, production lead time and WIP inventory by 75%.
