Infrastructure, Systems, and HMI Identification

Identify and Source the Needed Equipment and Systems to Optimize Supply Chain Capacity and Throughput

Subsequent to our facilities planning and operations design work, OPSdesign Consulting can help you specify and source the needed material handling and storage equipment (MHE), supply chain information systems, and human-machine interface (HMI) to support the optimal warehouse design.

We start by developing functional requirements documents which detail the performance specifications, operating conditions, and technical characteristics associated with the design scheme. These features are then incorporated into formal bid documents (Request for Proposals) which define the project goals and objectives as well as vendor response mandates, schedule, and compliance requirements.

Our experienced engineers, analysts, and consultants can administer a sealed bid process on your behalf and perform a comparative analysis among the vendor responses. Our depth of experience allows us to perform qualitative and quantitative analyses which arm our clients with the information needed to make “apples to apples” comparisons (reducing cost and risk).

OPSdesign’s unbiased approach and sealed bid process ensure that the full spectrum of supplier alternatives are examined and that your fiscal interests are protected in the process. As a result, we have worked successfully with numerous vendors in each specialty category (including manufacturers, distributors, value-added resellers, and integrators based on our client’s preferences and the distinctive requirements of their warehouse, distribution, or e-commerce design project.
