Layout and Plant Structure Planning

Structures that have grown over the years, capacity bottlenecks and other restrictions force companies to rethink their strategic alignment. TMG plans your new plant in various alternatives based on the essential functions of a plant, such as production, logistics, indirect functions and general development.

Why TMG Consultants

Your Partner for Your Sustainable Layout Plan

By way of customised methods, digital approach and simulations, we find efficient solutions, even for complex challenges in the layout planning of your production. At TMG Consultants, we combine flexibility and sustainability in the strategic direction of your plant layout planning to make your plant successful in the long-term.

Customised methods

Layout Planning

The cornerstone of an efficient factory is detailed and comprehensive layout planning that takes into account all the requirements of those involved in the process. In this respect, it is important to look at the “Big picture.” From the analysis to the evaluation of the status quo, identification of improvement potentials as well as development of alternative solutions to the selection of the optimal layout.
The planning methods we use are very diverse and depend on the task on hand. We combine classic planning methods of production segmentation with lean methods in a layout and visualise them by means of simulation.

As a result of the layout planning and factory design, you receive the dimensioning and production requirements for your new plant. To that end we transfer the building requirements based on the production layout into a structural engineering rough concept.
The goal is clear flow directions, minimised transport routes and efficient use of space – this forms the basis for the general planning.

Long-term solutions

Plant Structure Planning

The aim of plant structure planning is to make production and the internal flow of materials efficient, flexible and future-oriented, whether greenfield or brownfield. Structures that have grown over the years, capacity bottlenecks and other restrictions combined with a multitude of micro- and macro-influences force companies to rethink their strategic alignment. An efficient arrangement of process-relevant areas is required to align your company successfully in the long-term.

TMG has developed a variety of solutions for this in recent years. Coupled with a profound understanding of production and logistics, the levers can be specifically identified and ideally designed using systematic methods.
From the collection of planning-relevant data to the elaboration of alternative concepts to the development of the favoured concept – the “One-Stop-Shop” enables all these phases of plant structure planning to be designed with the future in mind.

Future-oriented plant structure planning

The Three Key Questions

  • What does the strategic development of a plant look like to shape the future efficiently and with expansion options?
  • What does the future plant layout look like, taking into account optimisation potentials, and how are indirect functions integrated?
  • What does an investment & implementation plan look like?

On the one hand, the implementation of plant structure planning depends on excellent methodological support. On the other, experienced project managers are needed to master this change of the company.
The interdisciplinary expertise of TMG Consultants combined with a large network offers the best prerequisites for designing a sustainable factory structure. Digital planning methods and the possibility of simulation further optimise the planning processes.
