Munitions Modernization

Mason & Hanger is a leader in providing planning, design, engineering, and construction support services for munitions and industrial facilities for the United States Army Corps of Engineers and the United States Navy as well as other government agencies.

These projects have included detailed studies of resources (manpower, space, equipment, materials and information flow, and finances), value stream mapping, and customer volume demand through the techniques of time studies, simulations, LEAN and Six Sigma analysis.

Recent modernization projects include automated machine setup, automation of material handling (robots, automated conveyors, automated guided vehicles, etc.), and Artificial Intelligence (AI) that provides efficiency and enhanced safety for workers.
