A Plant Layout Design for a Bamboo Furniture Industry

Abstract

The general reasons found to revise the design of furniture manufacturing unit are: Low production capacity, conventional machines and operating tools, non-scientific design ignoring time, motion and work study, erroneous material processing and work flow directions, functional discomforts including facilities & utilities, lack of engineering concepts and ergonomics etc. Therefore, the major objectives in design of bamboo furniture manufacturing unit are: layout design based on modern engineering concepts, contemporary machine tools and tooling, skilled manpower, ergonomically designed utilities & facilities and scope for future flexibility. The factors contributing to the objectives determine final productivity. The present paper addresses the design of factory layout for bamboo furniture manufacturing unit, but not limited to it.
