Delivering Success

Protolan delivered a capacity planning model that developed a process map for all products and allocated these processes to new equipment. We worked to formulate a detailed capacity model which assigns volume to each process and subprocess and identifies raw material, intermediate and finished goods storage requirements. We also created a dynamic process flow plan that allows different scenarios to be reviewed and potential breach points/limitations identified.

To maximise opportunity Protolan established a set of planning rules that can effectively be used to map day to day production schedules. We also created a list of recommendations associated with equipment and plant that may release capacity/bottlenecks moving forward.

Our experienced team lead, design, and implement process improvements for Food Project Engineering and Capacity Planning and develop strategies for inventory and production.

We endeavour to identify a new way of doing things and see challenges from a different perspective.  We deliver clarity, clear thinking and answer the question of “how can we achieve manufacturing excellence?”
