Logistic engineering and consultancy
SAVOYE supports companies both for operational and strategical issues.
The audit is an essential stage in consulting. It takes place on site and allows for the identification of warning signs and possible improvements whilst anticipating business and budgetary constraints and company growth forecasts. It consists of 5 main analysis elements which help to address the customer’s problem:
business visibility, balancing out the workload in the facility
suitability of workload/capacity, ergonomics of workstations
number of operator workstations, flow processing, work flow appraisal
verifications carried out, preparation errors
breakdowns, failures, maintenance
Construction of the organisation of logistic sites
Layout and reconfiguration of warehouses and factories
Supply Chain Analyses
Blueprint: logistics, production, information system
Studying of transport system, studying and optimisation of transport organisation
Modelling and optimisation of logistic networks: Analysis of logistic activity, determination of the number of warehouses, their operating method and location in order to reduce costs
Optimisation of intra-logistic processes
Acceptance, storage, manufacturing, preparation (pick and pack, pick then pack), shipment
Optimisation of resources
By implementing Lean 6σ procedures to limit non-added value operations, optimisation and smoothing out of flows towards a Takt Time
Optimisation of the storage of reference items in the warehouse taking their physical characteristics into account (volume, dimensions PCB, SPCB, UVC), in order to rationalise space, increase productivity and manage restocking
Optimisation of the positioning of reference items in the warehouse to reduce unnecessary movements and thereby increase productivity
Reconsidering exististing box formats
The use of pre-packing algorithms helps to determine more profitable alternatives taking into account consumable savings, handling avoided and optimised transport operationsoptimisées.
Analysis of customer business data (item base, order book)
Reference slotting analyses and pre-packing of orders
Recommendations according to target ROI and business growth scenarios
Modelling flow scenarios and procedures by combining manual, automated and robotic processes
Dimensioning of equipment, definition of operating rules and the operational teams required
Simulation of the solution to anticipate the behaviour of complex systems and compensate for analytical models which are not able to provide a sufficiently accurate result
Support with implementation: compliance with deadlines, improvement of quality, optimisation of productivity, creation of relevant indicators.
Support with project management: functional analysis, adjustment of settings, introduction of test plans, start-up assistance.
Transition management on logistic site.
Ergonomics of workstations: encourage healthy positions and postures to reduce the arduousness of work, limit musculoskeletal problems and in general derive benefits in terms of safety, quality and time.
Support with change management in the logistic warehouse by enhancing the skills and encouraging the versatility of teams: training courses, training key users, providing e-learning modules.
To accompany the rise in competitiveness upon implementation of a new industrial tool or reinforce the multi-disciplinary aspect of a team, the logistics consulting department also offers a list of trainings with topics as varied as “fundamental logistics principles”, “stock management”, “knowing how to optimise your mapping”, “good ergonomic positions”, etc.
