Project engineering for industrial logistics
Project engineering makes it possible to offer innovative, tailor-made solutions aimed at integrating our customers’ requirements, optimising processes, streamlining costs, and ensuring reliable and responsive flow management.
Our project engineers dedicated to industrial logistics develop scalable solutions which can be incorporated into a comprehensive offer including logistics, packaging, transport, storage and distribution services.
IDEA offers ever more innovative industrial logistics solutions by actively monitoring and testing new emerging technologies (cobotics, virtual reality, autonomous robotic systems, etc.)
IDEA: committed to a lean manufacturing approach
Included at the heart of its customers' flows, IDEA has developed its own capacity to bring about change with a structuring industrial approach.
To achieve this, our teams are in direct contact with customers in the field and are backed by engineering expertise which guarantees lean manufacturing principles and practices.
Whether you want to make progress in this area, or give new impetus to your approach, IDEA is able to provide you with the necessary support.
The challenges of IDEA Lean: concrete approaches driven by operational staff
IDEA offers customers a range of lean manufacturing services.
By working with the scheduling/production function, IDEA offers customers just-in-time delivery which makes it possible to reduce stock levels and investments.
IDEA offers customers accelerated flows, including by managing the transition from push flows (production creating stock) to pull flows (production driven by demand).
FLOW ANALYSIS AND RESOURCE REENGINEERING
IDEA is an expert in the supply chain and can analyse customers’ logistics flows and use resource reengineering to improve safety, ergonomics, product quality and productivity.
DELIVERY OF KITS TO WORKSTATIONS
IDEA enables customers to boost productivity by providing kits including components, tools and consumables, directly delivered to workstations.
MORE LOGISTICS SPACE
IDEA’s know-how enables customers to increase the industrial value of surface area, by freeing up logistics space for production.
Through control management, IDEA gives customers the opportunity to control performance by implementing digital indicators which are updated in real time.
CLEAR VISUAL MANAGEMENT
IDEA can provide clear visual management solutions in the field for customers and teams.
The information communicated ensures flows are easily understood.
IDEA contributes to continuous improvement, in the broad sense of the term, from the operational level on a daily basis to the master plan approach of the customer site within 3 to 5 years.
Project engineering: IDEA resources
IDEA has a multidisciplinary unit which includes more than fifty project engineers and field technicians.
IDEA’s services also provide customers with information system tools for flow simulation, 3D layout, and logistics resources design.
Sharing best practices and field experience is inherent to what we do. Those points are included in an operational reference system, which is a key resource for our activities.
