The interaction of manufacturing, assembly and logistics across multiple sites – the production footprint – relies on a multitude of strategic decisions. When relocating production facilities, the starting point is always the question: What is the best location for my factory and logistics? The answer is based on a thorough analytical process and should not be left to gut feeling.
Depending on the production task, vertical range of manufacture, logistics relationships or the factor input, e.g. energy requirements or space requirements, the requirements for the new location are highly individual from company to company. As experienced site and factory planners, we know how to outline the success factors for new plants and logistics centers in order to create a search profile for a country, region or site.

We also support you in making your existing value network efficient and future-proof. agiplan reviews existing value chains for their performance and develops various optimization options. As a result, our clients receive a thoroughly tested recommendation for action and decision support for an optimized production and logistics network that enables the realization of corporate goals and is feasible to implement.

agiplan's approach to production and supply chain network design

Identify and manage supply chain risks

By letting agiplan analyze and minimize the risks in your logistics processes, you will benefit from lean, fast and resilient operations. Resilient supply chains lead to stable factory supply, even if one of the elements along the process chain is out of balance. Our consulting services can help companies avoid the high losses that can occur when they fail to consider supply chain risks and instead respond to them when they occur.
