METAL FABRICATOR RE-ENGINEERS AND EXPANDS FACILITY TO CAPTURE MARKET SHARE...

The manufacturer retained Sievert to analyze the production work flow, engineer a more efficient layout of existing operations, and design a building addition to increase production output. Sievert's new design improved utilization of existing space, increased output, and reduced wait time, material handling and storage requirements. The manufacturing process generally flowed from receiving to precision sheet metal fabrication to welding and grinding to painting to assembly to finished goods storage. Work was originally assigned to machines based on a period (cycle) manufacturing approach. Different product lines were processed on scheduled days each month. The new manufacturing strategy incorporated more efficient and flexible production machinery and rearranged fabrication operations into four work cells based on part families with similar processing requirements. The size of the facility increased from 91,000 to...

APPLYING THE VALUE ENGINEERING METHOD TO IMPROVE BUILDING PERFORMANCE AND MINIMIZE CONSTRUCTION COSTS...

The Sievert Group was commissioned to provide comprehensive engineering, architecture, and construction management services for a new metals fabrication facility located on the south side of Chicago. The 53,000 square foot plant was designed to accommodate welding, plasma cutting, grinding, and painting processes plus administrative functions. Initially, the project owner retained Sievert to provide process engineering and agency construction management services only. A small commercial architecture firm created a design concept for the new manufacturing facility before Sievert became involved with the project. Sievert com...
