CAG Explains - Rules of Plant Layout

Posted by ACopani on May 12, 2016 at 10:45 AM

Rules of plant layout: 

  • Integration: Integrate people, materials, machines and supporting services to get the optimum utilization.
  • Minimum distance: distance traveled by the people and materials should be minimal...straight line movement should be preferred.
  • Space utilization: Utilize both horizontal and vertical space.
  • Flow: make the materials to move in forward direction towards the completion stage.No backtracking.
  • Flexibility: take into account future requirements.
  • Safety, security and satisfaction.
  • Minimum handling: use the material handling to the minimum.

Do not forget, however, location. The efficency with which products are transported to the customers makes the election of location a key decision.

CAG Explains - When do you decide it's time to pivot and when do you decide your product isn't going anywhere?

Posted by ACopani on April 7, 2016 at 1:50 PM

There are four simple rules to solve this problem.

Talk to your customers and find out ...

  1. -- Do your customers see a problem?
  2. -- Do your customers want to solve that problem?
  3. -- Will your customers pay to solve that problem?
  4. -- Can your business actually solve that problem?

Try to solve those questions. If the answers are no for any of those questions... You must move on.
