Abstract

The case illustrates a systematic approach to the layout planning of a 5200 sq ft Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) laboratory facility. Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) is used to prioritise the conflicting goals of the facility and a Linear Goal Programming (LGP) model provides the optimal space allocation. These are then incorporated into Muther''s Simplified Systematic Layout Planning methodology which provides a framework for the development and evaluation of layout alternatives. An available computer-aided design and drafting (CADD) system can be used to enhance the productivity of the facility planners. Simulation modelling can also be introduced as a powerful tool for evaluating alternative layout proposals for the flexible manufacturing cell.
