Meet One of Our Industry Experts

Tom Drivas

Tom Drivas is a 20 year veteran of the Supply Chain and MHE industries. Throughout his career, Tom’s primary focus has been on consulting for clients requiring expertise in application engineering, operations management, MHS/ASRS design and implementation with the integration of WES/WCS software platforms and data collection technologies in a variety of distribution environments.

Our team of experienced Facility Design consultants partners with your organization to define and analyze your facility’s current operational data and process areas.

We then validate which baseline parameters align with organizational goals and where disconnects currently exist. From there, multiple material flow analysis (MFA) reports are employed to compile data on current distribution practices, operational costs and key performance indicators (KPI) for comparison to alternative facility strategies.

enVista’s proprietary suite of Facility Design and slotting tools provides over 80 process area profiles and reports that drive alternative Lean material flow strategies throughout your facility. By systematically applying Lean principles throughout this process, enVista’s project teams identify the solutions that most effectively eliminate current operational deficiencies, decrease waste (MUDA and MURA), improve organizational service levels and reduce costs.

With industry-leading simulation technologies and unparalleled experience, our Facility Design engineers optimize IT technologies, labor force, material flow, MHE automation, and overall supply chain performance to create a facility that will not only exceed today’s performance requirements, but tomorrow’s as well.
