United Food Industries Corporation Saudi Arabia - Facility Re-engineering

LPC’s approach was to concentrate on the operation, determine the requirements and objectives, optimise the solution and then consider how the building envelope can be altered or extended to accommodate the operation.

LPC started the project with the mapping of the processes, material flows and identifying the requirements at each stage in both production and packing. All of the processes employed were reviewed in terms of function, resource and space requirements. The material flows were sized by unit load moved and overall cube. The existing volumes and throughputs were then uplifted to take account of anticipated growth and future demands over the design horizon which the client had identified. The optimal material flows were then calculated and plotted to minimise movement and handling.

The Entertainment Network - Facility Re-engineering

 
The bulk capacity review was undertaken in two ways:

•By a site search of warehouses of suitable size in and around Aylesbury
•By looking to expand on the existing site

The most cost effective solution was to extend the existing warehouse by means of a “temporary” building, saving in construction costs and transport and handling of stock to and from a remote site.

SAB - Uganda - Network Strategy and New Facility Design

In addition to the Kampala DC LPC quantified the sizes and “mix” of distribution centres required. Concurrently, LPC provided a market analysis to allow SAB to confirm growth predictions by using demographics to compare the population distributions by Districts, for both the Beers and Rwenzori Water, with volume sales by district and identify the theoretical consumption per capita based on the numbers of distributors, population and current sales.

SAB - Blueprinting Facility Design - New Facility Design

 
 
In order to meet increasing demand, SAB will require additional depot and warehousing capacity, and as such, SAB intended to commence building new sites while extending existing sites in the short term and expected to continue that roleout into the foreseeable future.
 
In order to optimise the designs of the new facilities, SAB engaged LPC to develop a Blueprint for depot and warehousing design.
