  • Plant Layout Prepared By: 2- Ahmed Mounir ( R&D ) 1- Ahmed Fathi ( R&D )
  • Plant Layout Plant layout ideally involves allocation of space and arrangement of equipment in such a manner that overall operating costs are minimized.
  • Plant Layout ESSENTIALS : a) Proper and efficient utilization of available floor space b) To ensure that work proceeds from one point to another point without any delay c) Provide ease of supervision and control d) Improve productivity
  • Plant Layout TYPES OF LAYOUT: 1. Manufacturing units (a) Product or line layout (b) Process layout (c) Fixed Position or Location Layout (d) Combined layout 2. Traders 3. Service Establishments
  • Plant Layout
    • Manufacturing units
    • (a) Product or line layout
    machines and equipments are arranged in one line depending upon the sequence of operations required for the product >Sequence of operations including assembly, testing packing >No points where one line crossed another line >Materials may be fed for assembly but not necessarily at one point Advantages: > Optimum use of floor space > Lower cost of manufacturing per unit Disadvantages: >High initial capital investment >Breakdown of one machine will hamper the whole production process Example: Iron Furnaces Keeping In Mind
  • Plant Layout
    • Manufacturing units
    • (b) Process layout
    In this type of layout machines of a similar type are arranged together at one place. E.g. Machines performing drilling operations are arranged in the drilling department Keeping In Mind >Distance between departments should be as short as possible >The departments should be in sequence of operations Advantages: > Lower initial capital investment > Effective Supervision Disadvantages: > Time gap in production > High material handling costs Examples: furniture industries & jewelry
  • Plant Layout
    • Manufacturing units
    • (c) Fixed Position or Location Layout
    In this type of layout, the major product being produced is fixed at one location. Equipment labour and components are moved to that location. Advantages: Adjustments can be made to meet shortage of materials or absence of workers by changing the sequence of operations.
    • Disadvantages:
    • Capital investment is very heavy
    • Very large space is required for storage of material and equipment
    Examples: Construction of building & Hospital
  • Plant Layout
    • Manufacturing units
    • (d) Combined layout
    Certain manufacturing units may require all three processes namely intermittent process, the continuous process and the representative process combined process Example: Airplanes Assembly
  • Plant Layout 2. Traders 3. Services centers and establishment When two outlets carry almost same merchandise, customers usually buy in the one that is more appealing to them. Thus, customers are attracted and kept by good layout i.e. good lighting, attractive colors, good ventilation Services establishments such as motels, hotels, restaurants, must give due attention to client convenience, quality of service, efficiency in delivering services and pleasing office ambience.
