||Send me a copy of the "BP Lubricants - Optimizing Warehousing in a Campus Environment" by Kevin D. Harris, Global Supply Chain, OEM Supply Chain & Customer Solutions Manager Co-presented with Pelyco
Learn how an $8+ billion global manufacturer successfully developed an integrated, optimized solution to meet its storage and
distribution needs in order to support its largest lubricants factory in the world. The Baton Rouge Facility is the largest BP lubricants blending site within
the Global Supply Chain, blending lubricants (bulk and package) and proprietary additives for both domestic consumption and export sale. As volume for this
facility had significantly increased, warehousing support had not kept pace. Reduced storage space, resulting from manufacturing expansion and encroachment, had
actually further exacerbated the situation. Future production growth was limited, productivity and efficiency were reduced due to bottlenecking, and safety
concerns began to arise due to the limited space and congestion. Additionally, third party shuttling and warehousing costs skyrocketed and service levels began to
decline as a result of the inefficiencies created in the sub-optimal product flow. A multi-step process was initiated that engaged both internal and external resources. The approach included multiple phases: data gathering and analysis opportunity assessment and solution development funding and resource allocation project initiation, implementation and completion The outcome of this process was a multi-project initiative that addressed physical, system, people and process improvements, resulting in an optimized campus solution. This solution reduced costs and improved safety, service, efficiency and productivity. This program became a model for the management of future multiple, interrelated projects.
