November 7, 2018 754

Description

Amgen is an American multinational biopharmaceutical company and is the world’s largest independent biotechnology firm.

Opportunities

Groenewout was asked to do a check on the possible redesign of the Pick & Pack area. The check was done to maximize productivity and capacity given an increase in direct orders and the in house positioning of external forwarder shipping processes

Solution

A feasibility study is performed to redesign the checking & packing process. In the first part of the study, the scope of the direct order flow  and its impact on the total flow was defined. This to allow defining a right concept. Several alternative solutions were proposed and discussed in the project team leading to a preferred solution. A sensitivity check was executed on the concept trying to integrate different possible future extensions.

The preferred concept is described in a technical and functional way making possible suggestions for adaptations to the check and pack process, supported by several 3D-visualization means.

Benefits

  • Maximization of productivity and capacity in pick and pack hall
  • Synchronization of VAL-activities within packing process
  • Meeting GMP requirements by preventing crossing flows
  • Optimization of direct order process flow mechanization to and from pack-tables.
