Manufacturing engineering and process engineering are required no matter what your product may be. The principles of sound engineering will be the building blocks of an efficient facility; lean methodologies of 5S, Yamazumi charts, Minomi systems, value stream mapping, smart material handling methods, properly engineered conveyors, well designed facility layouts to improve flow and throughput for your plants are essential. At Design Systems, we are proud of our work with a major wood treatment company. This company is experiencing growth and was in need of additional throughput capability. Recently, Design Systems, Inc. was involved with the conceptual engineering design of six (6) patents pending automated material handling systems for this company. At Design Systems, no two projects are the same and every customer receives the individual attention their project requires. In this case, it just so happened to lead to an innovative material handling design that is in the process of potentially being granted a patent.
