Preparing a layout
There is no single acceptable and rigorous procedure by which to achieve our objectives that may vary from one situation to the next. Even in seemingly straightforward situations, where comparatively few items are to be arranged or
A suggested procedure is shown below, but this must not, of course, be regarded as definitive.
Information required before a layout can be planned:
a) type and quantity of labour, along with the company organisational structure.
b) Dimensional plan of the space to be laid out.
c) The volume of work to be produced both immediately and in the foreseeable future.
d) The operations to be undertaken, their descriptions, sequence and standard time.
e) The equipment needed to carry out operations.
f) The number of movements of material from one work centre to another during a representative working period.
g) The nature and volume of materials, partly finished, and finished items.
h) Availability of fire exits, drains, water. Communication systems etc.
i) â€˜keyâ€™ operations.
Of the four basic layout patterns, namely, process layout, product layout,
In process layout planning, the most common approach is to arrange departments or work centres in the most economical locations. In many facilities, optimal placement in the most economical location means MINIMISING MATERIAL HANDLING COSTS. It entails placing departments with large interdepartmental flows of parts or people next to one another. One can develop an initial schematic schema showing the sequence of departments through which parts will have to move. Departments with a heavy flow of materials or parts should be placed next to one another. Then one has to determine the cost of this layout by using the
Min.Cost = Xij Cij
n = total number of work centres or departments
i, j = individual departments
Xij = number of loads moved from department I to department j
Cij = cost to move a load between department i and department j.
This formula assumes
Consequently by trial and error (or by a more sophisticated computer approach such as CRAFT) one can try to improve this layout to establish a reasonably good arrangement of departments. Finally one considers the space or size requirements of each department, i.e. arrange the departments to fit the shape of the building and its
Before finalising the design of a factory, one must consider all the factors which will affect the plant. This is especially the case for new factories which should offer fewer complications. An important factor that must be taken into consideration when designing a factory is to allow room for future expansion, especially when planning each section of the factory. One should plan for services such as power, water, drainage, etc. to allow for expansion.
There are various factors influencing the design of buildings. The purpose of the factory building should be for the production process, and so the design must satisfy the needs of the operating system. Features to be taken into consideration include:
a) the elimination of hazards throughout the factory by proper design principles and materials used.
b) The fixing of height of roofs in relation to machinery, and the need for overhead cranes, conveyer systems, etc.
c) Structure of floors in order to support machinery.
d) Calculation of weight involved in supporting overhead conveyers.
e) Correct structure of walls and steel works, and support of gantry cranes.
f) Installation of services, such as waste disposal (shute, trolley, air blower systems, etc.) special lighting arrangements for certain processes, the need for ventilation, humidity control, fresh air intakes, etc.
In terms of type of building, one must consider the cost and availability of land, the ability to expand the building in the future, the size and shape of the plant and the construction costs.
