4Ward Solutions Group of Stanwood, WA recently enhanced their 4Ward 3D Process Modeling service to include a full array of services utilizing the latest technology and software.  Our in-house team of veteran experts can map your entire facility to allow you to visualize your operation in a whole new way. A 4Ward Field Technician will arrive at your facility to take 3D pictures and measurements so that our on-staff 4Ward Modelers can create your building, equipment, and processes in three-dimensional space.

Some of the features you can take advantage of are:

  1. Create a 3D database of all your current manufacturing operations to map your current equipment, processes, and material flow.
  2. Identify bottlenecks and other traffic flow areas. After identifying these issues, you can move equipment in our 3D program to see the affect before spending the money to physically reorganize your facility.
  3. Create your value stream map, identify work cells, and create a job workflow.
  4. Plan for future equipment by looking at current efficiency and then what the effect on the operation will be by adding new equipment. This can all be done before you make the physical change.
  5. Provide best practice videos for training, current state/future state for lean training and much more.
