Find, Create and Check Layout Drawings
It is beneficial to the relocation process to have accurate drawings of your current and new factory. They are essentials tools for your team and contractors to replicate what needs to be moved. It can include equipment quantities and types, utility locations, aisles and overhead equipment. The more details, the better.
Audit and Document Machinery
Check all equipment and documentation to help you plan any replacements or repairs in advance. Recording and tagging equipment will help others confirm if they are working with the correct machine. The logs will help workers keep track of what’s leaving and where it needs to be placed. Photos and specific details about foundations or trenches should be noted. Spare parts, manuals, maintenance records and programming data should also be considered.
