Efficient facility layout design greatly improves the competitive and productive edge through reduction of material handling cost. The usual approach adopted to solve facility layout design problem without considering the material handling aspects has failed to provide an efficient manufacturing environment. Few works has been carried out to integrate the material handling equipment selection with the facility layout design. This paper proposes two distinct methodologies for integrating the… CONTINUE READING
