SCALA CASE STUDY
Major Flooring Supplier
Background & Brief
SCALA had undertaken previous work for this client. However, business has grown significantly resulting in clear inefficiencies within the warehouse operation and major concerns about the suitability of the current warehouse, in terms of size, processes and systems, to cope with anticipated future growth. A review is required which ideally will provide some short to medium term wins but the main objective is to identify what needs to be done to future-proof the operation looking at a 5-10 year window.
Benefits & Results
SCALA identified a range of options and a preferred recommendation covering:
Layouts that fitted within existing operation
Throughput capacities related to the current future projected requirements
Budget Costs and Operational Savings
Ease of Implementation
Changes to existing buildings
Options for on-site development of new buildings and new processes
Capacities, efficiencies, service implications etc
Subject to board approval and the continuation of current market conditions the next phase will be the development of a detailed proposal and full financial justification.
