For one of their telecom customers CEVA made contractual agreements on process improvement at their Den Hague site, this included revised warehouse layout and process design.
After contract agreement on short term a warehouse redesign including budget had to be realised. The process flows and storage requirements were analyzed and a new warehouse lay-out was made. After approval of this warehouse lay-out, the project management and team was set-up to get the required changes implemented in the running operations. Project team included landlord in regard to the building changes and internal CEVA organization. Discussions with insurance companies and certifying companies during implementation had to be held to cope with additional sprinkler requirements and requirement to the technical lighting installation.

- Project manager was switched to Groenewout without any delay in the project execution, project was delivered on time allowing contractual obligations to be met.
- Original design could be respected even after additional sprinkler requirements were set.
