Line-Layout Planning Process

Innomation assists manufacturers in developing automated production line layouts that are designed to meet throughput and performance requirements. The process starts by considering the manufacturer’s objectives and initial conceptual drawings and then developing an approach that is optimized for performance, safety, and reliability.

Innomation performs in-depth onsite analysis using the latest equipment to map your existing plant layout and utility provisions before developing the required production layouts that maximize space utilization, minimize man and material movement while meeting or exceeding government regulations and industry standards. This detailed and comprehensive approach results in line layouts that maximize productivity, reliability, safety, ergonomics, and ease of cleaning and maintenance.
