Welcome back to the next part in our series!
Production Flow and its impact on site selection are discussed:
On-time and high quality orders are essential for profitable manufacturing; this requirement demands well-organized and planned production operations. Material inventory layout and equipment capacities are all analyzed to optimize the production processes. That said, we all know that changes and rush orders do occur, raw material deliveries get delayed and equipment does break down unexpectedly. All this creates real-time adjustments even when an operation has a good plan in place!

oakville real estate: Size Matters! - 06/23/17 11:32 AM
Finding Your Ideal Commercial/Industrial Building - Part III
Welcome back! Here we discuss size and its impact on your choice:

Size does matter!
Economy of Scale (ES): It is assumed that as firms increases in size, they can become more efficient. The greater the quantity of goods or services produced, the lower the per-unit fixed cost because the start-up, operating and overhead costs are spread out over a larger number of goods. So as a company grows and production units increase, they will have a better chance to decrease their unit costs, and so, more rapidly grow their bottom line.

Location-Specific Advantages (LSA’s) enable a company to improve its bottom line and rate of growth by strategically finding the optimum place to operate as compared to other locations.
We always hear the same phrase associated with real estate. “Location, Location, Location.” It may be a cliché but all clichés have some basis in reality and this one is no different. The location of your plant will affect your business, positively or negatively, for however long you are there. In addition, how it affects your business can, and probably will change over time. The location will … (2 comments)
