Due to growth, a global consumer goods manufacturer looked to build a new plant and asked Miebach Consulting to review the layout concept for an existing facility. In the first step, one of the existing distribution centers was audited and optimization potentials were identified. Next, analysis of material flow and factory traffic were carried out. Based on the results from the audit and analysis, the layout for the new plant was optimized.
