FLSmidth Roymec’s major differentiator is its use of a sophisticated proprietary software programme which facilitates absolute control of all elements of the conveyor build. This approach to managing project logistics has realised significant savings which is an important factor in all construction activities.
Patrick Smith, manager for scoping and business improvements at FLSmidth’s South African operation, says that while many companies have the capability to fabricate conveyor structures and supply ancillary components for conveyor systems, none has access to this type of sophisticated process control.
The FLSmidth smart numbering system uses the source information from the initial design through to the end of the project. There is no manual input required and tracking continues through design, in-house detailing, fabrication, galvanising, painting, trial assemblies, where relevant, through all logistics functions to final on-site installation.
The smart numbering system is always the same. It is a hard stamp number that is simple to read. Its numeric hierarchical structure can be easily understood by FLSmidth’s people which facilitates tracking of all elements of the project as well as easy location of different fabricated members on site and erection thereof.
