Logistic engineering and consultancy

SAVOYE will assist you through every phase in your project from the initial audit to the optimisation of processes, the designing of solutions and the monitoring and supporting of implementation.
Savoye shares its know-how and experience which it has gained from over 25 years of implementing software coordination and logistic platform automation solutions with its customers for numerous sectors of activity and firms of all sizes.
From the preliminary study through to the project phase, Savoye relies on its multi-disciplinary, experienced teams who are dedicated to consultancy and engineering associated with logistic solutions.

 

SAVOYE supports companies both for operational and strategical issues.

 

Preliminary study

Audit

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:

Coordination:

business visibility, balancing out the workload in the facility

Operators:

suitability of workload/capacity, ergonomics of workstations

Capacity:

number of operator workstations, flow processing, work flow appraisal

Quality:

verifications carried out, preparation errors

Availability:

breakdowns, failures, maintenance

 

Masterplan

Construction of the organisation of logistic sites

Layout and reconfiguration of warehouses and factories

 

 

Analysis

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

 

 

Intralogistic analyses

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

Slotting

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

Mapping

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.

 

Designing solutions

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

 

 

Project

Project management

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.

HR

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.
