Abstract Facility layout problems (FLP) involve determining the optimal placement of machines within a fixed space. An effective layout minimises costs. The total material travel distance is a key indicator of the efficiency of internal logistics. Changes in demand and product mix may alter the material flow. The dynamic facilities layout problem (DFLP) takes into account changes in demand and allows for the periodic redesign of facilities. Facility redesign may reduce the material flow cost… CONTINUE READING
