Recent Projects We’ve Undertaken
Our firm has provided mechanical engineering consulting assistance to numerous businesses throughout many different industries. As a result, we’re well-versed in the needs of our clients, no matter how big or small a task they may have. Our expansive experience is illustrated by our extensive project list. Here are just a few recent projects we’ve undertaken, with truly impressive results:
- Facility Relocation – Inefficiency was a major issue at this Greenfield work location. Due to the problematic layout of the site, customer service was on the wane, which was having a direct impact on sales and profitability. We started by identifying the weaknesses of the current location, which brought us to two possible solutions. We could have revamped the existing site or moved to a brand new location. We opted for the latter choice, with truly stunning results. Our work brought about $1.58 million in savings in terms of labor, as well as a 30% increase in order picking productivity.
- Automotive Process & System Layout – A motor vehicle manufacturer provided a proposed layout of a new facility, which our team analyzed to ensure it was the best possible way forward. Because we identified deficiencies during the course of our review, we made a recommendation of an altered layout that was projected to meet the manufacturer’s needs. One major deficiency we found had to do with spacing requirements. While the initial layout planned for 30,000 sq. ft., we found that 60,000 sq. ft. was actually necessary. Our revisions improved the flow of materials through the facility and enhanced the rate of production.
- Healthcare Management – We performed a management engineering study of an emergency room in a 325-bed hospital. The goal was to manage patients coming into the ER more effectively, thereby improving the healthcare afforded to them during their stay. After a dogged review of essential records and information, we proposed three separate layouts, each of which was finely tuned to the hospital’s needs. We also made recommendations regarding service hours that allowed the hospital to increase the number of patients being admitted, while also redesigning nurse stations to prevent overcrowding.
- Space Optimization & Automated Solutions – Work for this vitamin and supplement manufacturer began with a no-risk assessment. While the client originally wanted to build a brand new facility to overcome space issues, our analyses found that this wasn’t necessary. Instead, we proposed alterations to their current facility to increase productivity and efficiency within the building. As a result, we saved this client millions on costs required to build a new facility from the ground up. In terms of work improvements, our plan improved throughput by 190%, while inventory replenishment saw a 75% increase.
