Greenfield Planning for a Press Shop
Allgaier Werke GmbH, Uhingen

The process of planning a new press shop led Allgaier, a corporation working in process engineering and the automotive field worldwide, to seek assistance from consultants. As part of the ensuing cooperation, PROTEMA drew up an ideal layout for the press shop on the greenfield site.

 

Tasks and Objectives

The project encompassed developing an ideal layout for a press shop on a greenfield site, with two different site layouts considered. Within four weeks, feasible variations were developed and brought to a stage of readiness for a decision to be made, before company management chose its favorite. A design for a plant structure in the vicinity of the customer was also drafted and geared toward additional quantities and component variations in the automotive field. An extensible building layout for the press shop and the assembly and manufacturing areas was planned. In addition to the manufacturing areas, the utilization plan considered the areas for storing tools, coils, circuit boards, prefabricated components and assemblies for shipping, as well as the staging areas for manufacturing. The administrative and social areas were considered and given representative layouts, which were integrated harmoniously into the overall plan.
