Facility Design and Planning

Factory Layout Consulting

The basis of any facility design is rooted in the principles of lean manufacturing. Campbell Corporation’s extensive experience provides the qualifications of our business consulting experts on developing preliminary design and specifications for manufacturing facilities. Upon establishment of size requirements, we design a specific building configuration and prepare a preliminary scope of work. We identify all aspects of the building, including lighting, floor loads, clearances, entrances, flow patterns, process gas requirements and environmental requirements unique to your operations.

Based upon the facility’s plans, space programming analysis and defined operational flexibility, Campbell Corporation develops a schematic concept design to properly define the project at hand.

Process Flow

The process flow drawing delineates all production and warehousing equipment. Campbell Corp's project management firm defines the state of workflow by utilizing lean manufacturing and operational flexibility principals. We develop a high level process flow map for each product family, outlining future efficiencies. Process flow provides businesses with a substantial order in protocols.

By understanding our client’s future objectives, we can evaluate whether there is a cost reduction component, a capacity component or a quality component. We design facilities ensuring our customers become a vast competitor within their industry. Campbell Corporation utilizes Lean and Six Sigma methodologies which are Best In-Class. Such methodologies include but are not limited to:

  • Value Stream Mapping – Flow chart which identifies value and non-value added activities within your operation.
  • Balanced Production – Improving productivity by providing optimal balance through various manufacturing areas.
  • Changeover – Process from converting a production line from one product to another. 
  • Manufacturing Time Definition – (Auto workshop and Line Assemblies) Production lead time.
  • Line Capacity Analysis – Planning production line capacity to increase volume and timeliness.
  • Production Control Systems and Andon – System to notify management, maintenance and other workers of a quality or process problem. This system provides an efficient and reliable production flow.
  • Single-Piece Flow and Work-in Process Management – Eliminates waste through incremental improvement.
  • Reception and Warehouse process Architecture – Data warehouse implementations ensuring improved inventory processes. 
  • Constant Daily Output and Leveling Production – Provides systemically controlled productivity and a steady production flow to improve on-time delivery and efficiency.
  • Inventory Management and Kanban – System to control the logistics of the inventory.

Building Schematic Design

The building schematic design is based on the manufacturing goals and requirements of the facility, including comprehensive plans, designs and specifications. The manufacturing process and owner requirements are then transmitted to the design architect, structural engineer, HVAC engineer, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, etc. Campbell Corporation considers all design impacts, material handling requirements, raw material and WIP storage requirements, production equipment structural and mechanical requirements, code considerations, client branding, building component and systems design, etc.

Production and Logistic Equipment Layout

The production and logistic equipment layout depicts all production and warehousing equipment in addition to racking, which helps define building size, process flow and operational flexibility.
