Study for Validating the Plan of a New Steel Processing Plant Setup

Key Points

  • Storage space requirement
  • MHE utilization observation (for cranes and forklifts)
  • Dispatch truck utilization improvement

Client's Challenge

  • There exist certain constraints in the existing setup
  • The new proposed facility to be free of these constraints
  • Calculation on the number of cranes, and MHEs required
  • Calculation of storage space

PMI's Approach

  • Analysis of Data, building the model, and verification
  • Analysis of baseline model results
  • Bottleneck identification
  • Debottlenecking
  • Storage space reallocation based on iterative analysis

Findings & Recommendation

  • Plant capacity (of 21 tonnes/hr) validated
  • Present number of cranes was found insufficient
  • Hence some material handling was shifted to a forklift to
    reduce the load on the crane
  • Optimum truck inter-arrival time determined
