As part of a larger operational excellence scheme CEVA had developed redesign plans of the warehouse operation. CEVA was looking for help in the validation of the solution design and Capex of the warehouse redesign. As part of the redesign plans an assessment is needed for the current sprinkler installation.
Groenewout assessed the redesign plans including validation of starting points and review of processes, solutions, capacities and costs. Specific attention was given for the relocation plans of the mobile cage and the business case for the transition to euro pallets. Regarding the sprinkler installation Groenewout assessed the current condition of the installation and advised on necessary changes with respect to the warehouse redesign. Discussion and meetings with certification bodies, CEVA and it’s insurer and building owner and it’s insurer were necessary to come to decisions on this matter.
- Certainty and clarity on feasibility of redesign solutions as well as related investments.
- Detailed implementation plan including dependencies between different elements of the redesign.
