Material Flow / Handling Analysis
- Part Routing Analysis
Part Routing Analysis
As a part of our industrial engineering group, material logistics is proving to be a tremendous cost-savings for our customers. From internal routing of parts to trailer and container cubing, the savings are there for the taking.
Part Routing Analysis is the method which defines for every material that becomes part of the final assembly:
- All the processes within the manufacturing facility.
- All the locations where the processes occur.
- All the resources required to execute the processes in the locations, including the movement of parts.
- Indirect Manpower Analysis
Indirect Manpower Analysis
The DSI database is designed to create the data files required for analysis by third party software applications. We have engineers with the experience not only to do the number crunching but we live and stand by the results of our calculations.
- Dock Utilization Evaluation
Dock Utilization Evaluation
Excess docks, insufficient docks, or having docks in the wrong location to properly support internal logistics and shipping locations will drive unnecessary capital expenditures. DSI uses proprietary tools to conduct dock analysis for a facility which take into consideration direct and indirect load and unloading time, trailer setup and paperwork requirements, and trailer switching time. DSI has experience in all types of dock unloading processes whether using Stripper Systems, Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV), Automated Guided Carts (AGC), Self-Guided Vehicles (SGV), self-advancing trailers, Fork Free Carts (Dollies), or traditional fork lift load and unload.
