The majority of the issued facilities layout problems (FLPs) minimize the material handling cost and ignore other factors, such as area utilization, department shape and site shape size. These factors, however, might influence greatly the objective function and should give consideration. The research range of this paper is focus on the unequal areas(More)
—In this research, the Genetic Algorithm (GA) and Space-Filling Curve (SFC) are combined along with the use of Taguchi method for finding the optimal combination of parameters. The new algorithm has been tested on 12 cases of spine-type facility layout for four different material handling directions, e.g. clockwise one-way, two-way, clockwise one way with a(More)
