A new facility was constructed in southern part of India to produce Passenger car radial tyres for which a storage solution had to be derived for their Engineering stores. Engineering stores possess a peculiar challenge to accommodate multiple SKUs of different Sizes, Shapes, weight & volume and hence the storage structure had to be versatile enough. With the overall 13,400 sq.ft the office area had to be planned for 600 sq.ft without affecting the storage capacity.
Craftsman team visited their another manufacturing facility in order to make an operational study of their conventional Engineering stores. Based on the detailed ground study and SKU analysis the below mentioned solutions were offered
- Multi Tier Shelving system with G+1 Tiers were designed with 4 levels on each Tiers
- Modular Mezzanine system with G+1 configuration was offered in a motive to facilitate the office set up at ground tier for an area of 600 sq.ft
- Conventional shelving system with specialized baseplate had been offered & positioned over the Mezzanine flooring so as to utilize the area for Heavy Duty storage
