Volm Engineered Solutions

The smartest way from field
to market—to profit.

We Have A VESTed Interest In You

With the Volm VEST team, iteration beats incremental. Here’s why.

Typical packing facility design or new equipment integration takes an incremental approach that takes stock of what you’ve already got and what you need, and then works to reconcile the two. The Volm Engineered Solutions Team (VEST) takes a more effective Iterative Refinement Design approach that enables a smarter, more cost-effective design and implementation process.

How VEST Works

1. Project Request Evaluation

This first step gets the whole thing started by gathering all necessary information to determine whether the Volm VEST team is the best solution for your specific challenges.

2. Flash Assessment

  • Identify key drivers/goals of the project
  • Determine the project’s “must haves” and “nice to haves”
  • Fully understand budget constraints
  • Develop timeline parameters

Phase Deliverables:

  • Sample project layouts
  • Project budget estimates

3. Engineering Study

  • Determine the functional requirement for the project
  • Develop and agree on initial concept designs
  • Finalize detailed project estimates
  • Estimate delivery, installation, and training timeline
  • Prepare return on investment model

Phase Deliverables:

  • Finalize layouts demonstrating overall project concept, cost, timelines and return on investment
  • Full document package to be delivered in Adobe® PDF format

4. Project Execution

  • Provide full project management including supplier coordination
  • Final review of design, cost and timelines

Phase Deliverables:

  • Start-up coordination and support
  • Provide training plans and all necessary manuals
