Context Design Group performed Programming sessions and produced conceptual design ideas for IFA Rotorion, a German-based company developing and manufacturing driveshafts for the automotive market located in Charleston, SC. The programming process involved derivation of clear goals for equipment and facility requirements that coincided with future production volume estimates. CDG then developed conceptual ideas for expanding the existing facility to meet these goals and provide a more efficient process flow.
Through the Programming process, CDG gathered information from all departments of the company in order to produce the future goals of the facility and production. CDG also delved into each step of the current manufacturing process and produced flow diagrams while helping to streamline the process steps in order to arrive at a more efficient process flow. CDG was able to focus in on the primary areas (Safety, Corporate Image, and Logistics) that the company wished to alter and strengthen as future production increased. This Programming process produced the wealth of information needed by the company in order to assess their future needs and for CDG to develop conceptual design ideas for future expansion.
