While global CEOs had equipped themselves for force majeure calamities as well as natural disasters and were ready with their business continuity plans, no one was ever prepared for a COVID-19 situation that could lockdown 150 countries at once and not allow the workforce to reach their offices! The future business contingency plans will, therefore, focus on working from home.

Flatworld Solutions Provided Retail Visual Merchandising Services to a UK-based Client
The client we served is a leading UK-based retail visual merchandiser. The client combines specialist industry manufacturing knowledge with expert technical product design as well as program management proficiency to achieve greater cost savings than traditional supply chains. The client works with existing suppliers’ supply chains and products, but still consistently delivers double-digit cost savings. The client’s openness, integrity, and uncompromising nature change the manner in which their customers think about their commercial supply strategy. With a new approach to design, program management, procurement, and deployment, the client place the effective realization of the retail environment fully into their customer’s hands. The client also drives tangible savings into existing supply chain relationships by using cloud data management tools and innovative collaboration.
The client takes the inputs from their customers and comes up with the design concepts. Once approved by their customer, they assign the project to us. We are expected to perform design modeling and drafting of display fixtures as well as woodwork/millwork for display fixtures. The client didn’t want to train people and hire in-house owing to the huge resource cost. They instead wanted to partner with a reliable third-party provider of high-quality services.
The client provides the concept model and image sketches and, for the output, expects conceptual design, modeling, drafting, assembly-level drawings, and part-level drawings with the complete production package in PDF and CAD file formats as well as in the DXA file format for CNC production.
The client wanted us to devote only 1300 hours and to spend only USD 20,000. In addition, the client wanted a high-quality output within 2 months. The challenges we faced were understanding the construction methods of millwork for display fixtures, wood fixtures, and, glass, acrylic, and metal fixtures. We also needed the knowhow of the methodologies and materials and their utilization.
We assigned a team of 10 experienced members to the project. We then went about gathering the relevant know-how about the millwork construction methods as well as the methodologies and materials and their utilization. We used the Autodesk Inventor 2019 software package to perform the work.
We followed the process described below for the provision of our services -
We took up a trial at a discounted rate.
After the trial was successful, we received the concept model, images, and sketches of the area and the display fixtures.
We worked on the detailed engineering.
We met the design intent.
We created the component-level design and suggested a complete assembly makeover.
Finally, when approved, we created the DXA files for CNC and cut list and bill up materials.
We successfully delivered high-quality services to the client within the budget and on time, pleasing the client greatly.
