Forge your company’s future with a world-class facility

Experienced manufacturers know that a facility layout design project is the perfect opportunity to increase revenue, reduce lead times, and improve efficiency through application of Lean techniques. Campbell Corporation brings decades of Lean manufacturing facility planning experience to the table when partnering with you to design a new factory or facility layout. Our recommendations are practical, based on your goals and capabilities, and focused on your success. Rather than applying a cookie-cutter approach to manufacturing cycle efficiency, we tailor our methods and the tools we bring to bear so that you are able to seize opportunities for your business.

Let’s talk about how we can help you meet your manufacturing goals with a new facility, redesigned layout, or expanded operation. Want to know how we do it? Read on.

Facility Design and Factory Layout

How we approach facility layout design

After establishing your size requirements, we design a specific building configuration and prepare a preliminary scope of work. Then, we identify all aspects of the manufacturing plan floor plan including lighting, floor loads, clearances, entrances, flow patterns, process gas requirements and environmental requirements unique to your operations. The goal is to create a factory layout plan.

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

Process flow optimization is an essential part of facility layout design that delineates all production and warehousing equipment. At Campbell Corporation, we use Lean manufacturing and operational flexibility principles to develop a high-level process flow map for each product family to outline future efficiencies.

Facility Design and Factory Layout

By understanding your future objectives, we can evaluate whether there is a cost reduction component, a capacity component, or a quality component. Then, we provide a factory layout design that will ensure you’ll be competitive and thrive within your industry.

Our 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
    Improves productivity by providing optimal balance through various manufacturing areas.
  • Quick Changeover Management
    Single Minute Exchange of Dies (SMED) principles to reduce changeover time.
  • Manufacturing Time Definition
    Defining and planning production at the rate of your customers demand.
  • Line Capacity Analysis
    Planning production line capacity to increase volume and On Time Delivery (OTD).
  • Production Control Systems (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 to ensure 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
    Systems to control the logistics of the inventory.
  • Production and Logistic Equipment Layout
    Depicts all production and warehousing equipment, which helps define building size and operational flexibility.

Our clients typically achieve at least:

More On-Time Deliveries

Better Inventory Turnover Performance

Increase in Productivity

Space Saved

Building Schematic Design

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 materials, and WIP storage requirements, production equipment structural and mechanical requirements, code considerations, client branding, building components, and more.

Office and Support Area Design

Campbell Corporation conducts space planning principles and processes to integrate maximum efficiency and superior functionality. Our office area design work utilizes adjacency studies to promote effective collaboration in the workspace. With every facility layout and design project, our team of Lean engineers will develop a deep understanding of your goals in order to create a strategic plan for manufacturing cycle efficiency.

Campbell Corporation’s Lean manufacturing facility planners complete a thorough review of your company’s capabilities and limitations. We develop a value added, high-impact plan to elevate operations within your industry. With a complete understanding of your business and customer needs, along with your input, Campbell Corp will significantly raise your profit margin while your customers benefit from substantial productivity, functionality and an overall increase in quality.
