Optimal Plant Layout Design for Process-focused Systems

the actual facility layout often lies somewhere in between a pure line layout and a pure functional layout format; governed by the specific demands of a particular production plant. Since our present paper concerns only functional layout design for process-focused systems, this is the only layout design we will discuss here.
