Success factor: project handling, plant development

Every project an individual solution according to a standardized process

We use the stage-gate model to guarantee you structured and efficient project handling. With this approach, each project is guided through clearly defined stages (gates) that are crucial to systematically develop and validate tailored solutions. By using standardized processes within the Stage-Gate framework, we not only ensure the quality and efficiency of each system, but also ensure transparency and traceability in every project phase.

1

Concept stage

At the beginning, we intensively examine your specific requirements in order to develop a well-founded understanding of your production goals. The concept we create is based on your specifications and includes an optimal system layout, efficient processes and a well-thought-out safety concept.

2

Design stage

After concept approval, we transform your requirements into a detailed 3D system design. Our engineering team uses advanced CAD tools – and, if desired, 3D scans of your site – to ensure every component of the facility meets your precise requirements.

3

Production stage

With a strong vertical range of manufacturing, Greif-Velox goes beyond standardized solutions to meet individual customer requirements. Each assembly is subjected to strict quality tests to ensure consistently high manufacturing quality - from procurement to final assembly.

4

WIBN stage (factory startup)

In this phase, your system at Greif-Velox is fully used for the first time. Through in-depth testing and optimization, we guarantee that all functions work smoothly. The internal Factory Acceptance Test (IFAT), followed by the Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) with you, initiates the successful handover into the assembly phase.

5

Assembly stage

After detailed planning and production, we deliver the system to your location and carry out the professional assembly and commissioning. This section is rounded off by the Site Acceptance Test (SAT), which confirms the smooth start of your production.

6

Service stage

Greif-Velox continuously supports you with comprehensive services even after commissioning. Our goal is to ensure the longevity and high performance of your system so that you permanently benefit from maximum productivity and efficiency.
