Attention to Detail
Good quality design is all in the detail.
At FlowStore Systems our attention to detail means we always try to look deep within the application process so we can catch any unforeseen issues with any particular design.
From the big issues of carton flow and ergonomics, down to the finite details such as the impact to the operator with regards to label-holder positioning, no areas are overlooked.
All orders we receive for assembled solutions are reviewed on technical and commercial aspects, prior to manufacturing design being completed.
If necessary we’ll ask you for actual samples of goods, containers or parts, to ensure we understand the requirements and processes.
It’s no good assuming a car front bumper will retain its shape if it needs to be stored vertically – we test it. If an item needs to roll in a flow-rack, we’ll try it out to make sure your expectations are met.
We hate being disappointed, and we try to ensure that you are not. If it won’t flow reliably, we’ll let you know.
Our Quality Controls you to Deploy Faster
Quality control at FlowStore is a priority for us as we understand the impact downtime has on your material flow. We audit every part of our service from design to picking and production to ensure the solution we deliver meets the agreed specification.
A Project Manager is appointed to understand the project objective and the solution required
The specification for the solutions are discussed by the Project Manager and client
Project Manager creates a solution in CAD with measurements and bill of materials and sent to client for approval
Alteration requests are sent to the Project Manager to implement
Drawings are signed off by the client
Order placed and passed to the production team
Order Picking Audit
Components for the order are picked and then double-checked by another member of the picking team to ensure all items have been picked
A picture is taken of components with the picking list for quality control use in the event of a customer query
Precision Tube Cutting
FlowStore have installed a state of the art cutting tool for rapidly cutting tubes to pieces with laser-guided accuracy
This allows us to prepare the tube components quickly and pass to the assembling team for construction
After the tubes and components move to the production team, each solution is built to the specification on the signed off drawings
An audit takes place after each build stage, checking against the client approved drawings at each stage:
Stage 1: Base build
Stage 2: Frame build
Stage 3: Interior build
If any issues are highlighted during the audit, it is corrected immediately by the assigned production team member
Final Check And Loading Audit
Quality Control team check the solution against the signed-off drawings
Drawings and works number is attached to the solution for easier identification upon delivery
A final check is carried out before loading for transportation
Tests are done with actual size crates or cartons to ensure solutions works as required
Pictures of final build are taken and stored to enable faster assistance if there are any problems
Once loaded onto transportation, final images are taken to show structures were safely loaded
