Industrial organisation and setting out procedures for the A400M FAL & CN235/C295 FAL External Logistics Centre (ELC)
This project consisted of studying the needs for an External Logistics Centre (ELC) to supply the A400M FAL and the CN235/C295 FAL.
The layout design was carried out, internal logistics flows within the ELC and external flows between the ELC and FAL were defined, and procedures were set out to optimise shipment management under the Just in Time (JIT) philosophy.
The warehouse organisation was studied in detail for each of the organisational areas, such as the reception, litigation, scrapping, warehouse (following an ABC analysis to avoid as much wastage as possible) and CADO (Order Grouping Centre) areas.
