  • Description
  • Contents

A step-by-step guide to planning new factories and plant rearrangements, this book describes proven analytical methods for: calculating space requirements, activity-pair relationships, materials handling analysis, and generating alternative layouts. This proven strategy masterfully weaves together the very best elements of layout methods for manufacturing cells, JIT, demand flow, and constraint-based flow manufacturing philosophies, in addition to traditional job shop and assembly-line operations. In "Manufacturing Plant Layout," author Edward Phillips describes how to methodically reduce or totally rid a design of profit eroders during the planning/design of a cost-efficient manufacturing layout.
