Abstract

In this paper, we present a framework for determining the type of layout to use in a manufacturing environment characterized by constantly changing product volumes and mix. Much of the production equipment is assumed to be relatively light weight and therefore their location can be easily changed to suit the current production environment. The framework allows several alternate layouts to be developed and evaluated with respect to deterministic (material flow and machine relocation) criteria as well as stochastic (queuing) criteria.
