Material Handling Equipment Specifications are developed for each MHE subsystem within the facility. The specifications detail the length, width, height, type, load capacity, guarding, sequencing, and controls for each individual component of the MHE system. Specifications serve as the foundation for MHE proposals to ensure that each prospective MHE supplier will have the appropriate information to satisfy the requirements for the facility with the equipment offered.
JSC develops detailed Request for Proposal documents which are developed and provided to each prospective supplier involved in the competitive bidding process. The RFP details the deadlines, business requirements, and equipment specifications for the project to facilitate “apples to apples” proposals from all bidders. After detailed review of the submitted proposals, JSC provides a decision-making scorecard for supplier selection. The scorecard integrates quantitative and subjective decision criteria through a weighted scoring exercise. The result is an independent and objective recommendation of the best value and best fit MHE supplier for each project.
MHE Implementation Management can also be provided, which is our ongoing presence and efforts of our professionals during the installation of equipment and startup of a facility to ensure the project requirements are satisfied. Weekly project communication meetings maintain open dialogue for all parties involved and keep the project on schedule. Minutes of each meeting are provided with ongoing progress updates for open issues. Upon the completion of the MHE installation, formal acceptance testing is conducted and documented.
All project documents, schedules and project communications are maintained on the JSC Client Portal, to ensure effective communications between all involved parties.
