At Nissan South Africa, situated in Rosslyn, Gauteng, there is a trend to improve their
current logistical layouts throughout the supply chain and to make manufacturing
and assembly more streamlined.
In this project, the carpet supply chain will be redesigned from a Classic call logistical
supplier to a Just In Time supplier. By applying innovative Industrial Engineering
techniques and carefully analysing the various challenges, the goal of this project will
be to eliminate and/or reduce the redundant material handling, quality checks,
warehouse costs and the risks of damage that the carpets experience throughout the
