Our customer has developed conceptual design of a brand new turn-key automotive assembly plant for a major Russian automaker. DSI has provided project coordination, logistics engineering, participate in development of conceptual layouts, capital and operating cost estimates, utilities requirements, overall project schedule, program execution plan, and simulation. The result of the conceptual design is a viable business plan for an energy efficient, environmentally friendly world-class large volume multi-model automotive facility in Russia. Lessons learned from benchmarking of leading automotive manufacturers were employed in developing this “lean” manufacturing facility. The Team will assume Overall Project Responsibility for seamless project execution, from conceptual design to full production and beyond. Next step – detailed engineering.
