Engineering design begins with our highly skilled professionals conducting a thorough analysis of your operations in order to offer the appropriate innovative concepts and solutions to enhance your in-plant material handling function. Upon completion of this analysis, SIA assembles the resources appropriate to your specific needs, depending on the size, scope, and level of sophistication required to enhance your plant’s efficiency and productivity.
System Concepting & Design
System concepting and design is the process that allows SIA to tap into our experience and resources to develop a material handling solution that will satisfy your particular requirement, based on the needs analysis. It is at this stage that the exploration of possible system alternatives will be developed and evaluated, within the limits of justifiable approaches and available time. Concurrent with this activity will be the formulation of a plan for your operation to use technologies and procedures to optimize system utilization.
sophisticated software, we detail the concepts, select equipment, and organize project schedules. After SIA’s project engineers finalize the design details we initiate and oversee the purchase and/or manufacture of both existing and custom hardware components.
Since the mechanical equipment of today’s material handling systems are only as effective as the controls and software that run them, SIA ultilizes highly experienced controls engineers to design the integrated operating systems. Our systems can interface with your host computer, providing graphics and reciprocal information flow, resulting in significant improvement in visibility and efficiencies.
SIA team members manage and oversee your entire project from concept through implementation. Our expert supervision ensures smooth transitions and a high level of quality through every step -- design approvals, purchasing, subcontracting, installation, integration of subsystems and peripheral equipment, system commissioning, training, and ultimately, final customer acceptance.
