With a new oilfield services maintenance facility under construction, this client wished to engage Kaufman Global to review the functionality of the proposed workspace and assess footprint flexibility for future growth. Critical to this process is the ability to manage competing priorities and facilitate teams through a data-driven review of their value streams, capacity demands / future requirements and HSE considerations.
Work processes and capacity requirements were reviewed with the teams with a focus on material and people flows. These were superimposed on the available footprint to identify bottlenecks and building restrictions. Area designs were rationalized and combined into a complete picture and a facility-wide workshop was held to validate the design and gain consensus on the layout. The final result included 8 construction and 27 process recommendations agreed upon to enhance the functionality and footprint utilization of the workshop and yard.
