MASTER PLANNING WITH AN EYE TO THE FUTURE

Forward-looking plans identify your anticipated growth requirements and allow your manufacturing operations to respond quickly and effectively to market demands. We can help you make sound engineering decisions and manage capital expenditures more efficiently with a master plan that encompasses a high-level scope, schematic design, budget and preliminary timelines for a variety of growth scenarios. Our experience includes multi-phased assessments of an individual site or surveying an entire network.


PROJECT DEFINITION STUDIES

A project definition study is designed to provide answers to the biggest questions first. 

  1. What does the project look like, and what is it designed to accomplish?
  2. What is the project’s likely capital investment?
  3. How long will the project take to implement?



A sampling of subjects addressed with project definition studies:

  • Evaluating the development of a new facility versus an expansion or renovation
  • Determining the operational impact of introducing new products or processes
  • Weighing co-packing versus in-house manufacturing
  • Performing manufacturing due diligence associated
    with mergers, acquisitions or consolidation
  • Assessing optimal process flows
  • Evaluating automation options
  • Gauging utility constraints and consumption
