Unlike most architectural firms, Context Design Group embraces and specializes in "process-focused design." This means that the facility design supports and optimizes process flow rather than hinders it. We recognize that your project team knows your business better than anyone. By integrating the depth of experience of your team and our cross-industry knowledge base, we are able to facilitate the simultaneous creation of site, facility, and process layouts. Our team can work with you to develop the most desirable operational environment for your company and work with you to implement a long-range master plan for optimization and growth.
The key to successful process integration is to first understand the goals and objectives of your business. Using our unique programming methodology, we are able to identify your company's big picture goals as well as its short- and long-term operational objectives. In the preliminary design stages, we conduct an in-depth analysis of your manufacturing process steps and evaluate concepts and techniques associated with the process flow requirements. These "what-if" scenarios cover critical manufacturing issues including:
- Line vs. Cellular Manufacturing
- Materials Hanling & Automation Operations
- Impact of Special Operations or New Planned Technology
- Internal/External Logistics & Supply Chain Techniques
- Required Degree of Flexibility in Manufacturing Process
- Building Systems Interface
After analyzing these issues, our team will finalize the process layout and conceptual facility design. Context Design Group then works to clearly document all facility and process requirements and work with you to define integration steps for the future. With our attention to detail and extensive cross-industry experience, we can ensure a seamless transition from concept integration to start of production.
