    Fixed-position layout
    Product-oriented layout

  • 3. Improving Layouts Using Work Cells
    Current layout - straight lines make it hard to balance tasks because work may not be divided evenly
    Improved layout - in U shape, workers have better access. Four cross-trained workers were reduced.
    U-shaped line may reduce employee movement and space requirements while enhancing communication, reducing the number of workers, and facilitating inspection
  • 4. Improving Layouts Using Work Cells
    Current layout - workers in small closed areas. Cannot increase output without a third worker and third set of equipment.
    Improved layout - cross-trained workers can assist each other. May be able to add a third worker as additional output is needed.
