Plant Material Management
Is it time to invest in what could be your largest unrealized cost center? It’s not pretty, it’s not fun and it’s not even a profit center, but it could be the difference between a successful thriving business and a business on the verge of decline. Let’s talk about material handling and material flow. You may be spending millions more than needed by not understanding and applying the principles of a good materials department. This webinar is sure to give you some simple tools and practices that can make an immediate improvement to both your facility and your bottom line.
Facility Layout and Material flow Optimization is the evaluation of multiple layout scenarios to design the optimum layout that reduces material handling costs, improves throughput, and minimizes space requirements. PMC uses their expertise in following tools to reach the desired output.

Use of CAD in MFA and Layout optimization
Accurate 2D and 3D CAD data is the essential starting point in any analysis and improvement efforts for material flow or layout design. Being a multi-faceted company, PMC leverages its digital engineering expertise to help create existing plant models for our clients. To assist with this task, we created an extensive asset library consisting of all major MH, tooling, and equipment designs to suit all industry needs. With that said PMC also has the added ability and experience in designing custom/task specific material handling solutions for unique situations. This added level of detail helps in more accurate visualizations of the plant as a whole and makes it easy to tackle inefficiencies.
Ergonomic Material Handling Equipment
PMC’s expertise in evaluation of ergonomically standard material handling equipment and stations based on Anthropometric Measurements gives a different dimension in designing the line side equipment and delivery of product. This approach of Material Handling is ergonomically operator centric as well as efficient for the overall Material Handling design. With a combination of CAD designs and Ergonomic simulations, the following estimates can be made which are vital for operator wellbeing and process efficiency.
- Ideal pick upic heights
- Optimum reach
- Best workstation/line side equipment heights and reaches
- Permissible Load Limit
- Worker Load Repetition
Dynamic Simulation for Material Flow
PMCs expertise in discrete and continuous event simulation in a wide variety of simulation packages has benefited multiple clients over 30 years. Especially in the field of material handling, our dynamic simulation techniques allowed the client to efficiently plan for production ramping, design and optimize material handling routes, estimate accurate line side equipment, estimate Finished Goods inventory, optimize layout, optimize dock operations and warehouse footprints etc.
