Fa­cil­i­ty Lay­out So­lu­tion

Fa­cil­i­ty Lay­out So­lu­tion (FLS) is a tool cre­at­ed by Dapp. This tool op­ti­mizes the lay­out of your plant based on data. Be­cause we only look at this data, and thus take away the gut feel­ing, we can use Fa­cil­i­ty Lay­out So­lu­tion to come up with so­lu­tions that can save you up to 20% on your ma­te­ri­al han­dling costs.

Zon­ing Plan 2.0

With a so-called zon­ing plan you can make a glob­al lay­out of your plant. How­ev­er, any change in pro­duc­tion will prob­a­bly also bring about changes in the lay­out. In the food in­dus­try, this usu­al­ly in­volves many changes. First you ex­pand an ex­ist­ing pro­duc­tion line or add a new one. Even­tu­al­ly, so much has changed that the lay­out has be­come in­ef­fi­cient and con­fus­ing. Pro­cess­es get mixed up, which means that spe­cial so­lu­tions have to be in­vent­ed. Dis­tances are cov­ered that are many times longer than nec­es­sary and there is an in­creas­ing lack of space. Be­cause this sit­u­a­tion is built up over sev­er­al years, the over­view is lost after a while and find­ing a so­lu­tion seems an im­pos­si­ble task. It has be­come so clut­tered that you put the prob­lem off and opt for a tem­po­rary "so­lu­tion". For­tu­nate­ly, it can be done dif­fer­ent­ly!

Dis­cov­er the most ef­fec­tive lay­out for your plant

Wouldn't it be great if you could gain in­sight into how your fac­to­ry could be laid out ef­fi­cient­ly? That you don't just get a glob­al floor plan, but a de­tailed lay­out, so you know ex­act­ly what goes where? And in ad­di­tion to that, to gain in­sight into:

  • What can be im­proved
  • Where the ef­fi­cien­cy bot­tle­necks are
  • What it would mean to op­ti­mize the lay­out
  • How to get from the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion to the new one
  • Where you can best in­vest in the com­ing years
  • How to make the right choic­es
  • What the im­pact is of dif­fer­ent sce­nar­ios

Facility Layout Solution

How valu­able would it be if you knew about changes in the lay­out of the fac­to­ry, so that you can re­duce the lead time and with that the ma­te­ri­al han­dling costs? In a rel­a­tive­ly short time, you are pre­sent­ed with an op­ti­mal lay­out, tak­ing into ac­count all the im­por­tant pro­cess­es in the fac­to­ry, so that you can study where and/or when changes are need­ed.

Facility Layout Solution

There is a so­lu­tion, where the plant is viewed in­te­gral­ly. In which the com­plete plant is mapped. Not just that one piece, no, the en­tire puz­zle. For ex­am­ple, no one can weigh 8 vari­ables against each other in their head. That's 8 to the power 8 to the power 8.... In­stead of mak­ing de­ci­sions based on feel­ings, FLS al­lows you to make de­ci­sions based on facts and over­view. And that in a fast and sci­en­tif­i­cal­ly sub­stan­ti­at­ed way.

The com­plex cal­cu­la­tions to map out the en­tire fac­to­ry are im­pos­si­ble with­out an ad­vanced com­put­er pro­gram. There is (too) much in­volved and you lose the over­view. At Dapp we are com­fort­able work­ing with 30 vari­ables. And yet it re­mains clear. As a human being, you can never rea­son out such an op­ti­mal lay­out. In ad­di­tion, the pro­duc­tion de­mand can al­ready be dif­fer­ent in 2 months. Thanks to Fa­cil­i­ty Lay­out So­lu­tion these fac­tors are no longer a prob­lem in re­design­ing your fac­to­ry.
