Layout adapted to round factory improves utilization
An automotive supplier for vehicle exhaust systems was planning to construct a new factory. Miebach Consulting accepted the task of developing the logistics concept including layout for production supply for a round building design, with the core element of the logistical supply concept for assembly lines being the plan to utilize tugger trains. A logistics service provider was integrated into the procedure of planning this unusual factory structure for the future operations.

Concept for supply and removal of components for assembly lines
Customize processes for selected logistics service providers
Optimized utilization of space for a round building geometry
Efficient assembly line supply through tugger train concept
Reduction of external warehouse capacity by nearly 15%
