Layout decision

Layout – deciding where to put all the facilities, machines, equipment & staff in an operation (Slack, 2001)

Layout Decision

  • Require substantial investments of resources

  • Involve long term commitments – not easily changed

  • Impact on the cost & efficiency of short term operations

Fixed position layout
Fixed Position Layout machines, equipment & staff in an operation (Slack, 2001)

  • Transformed resources remain stationary

  • Transforming resources move as necessary

  • Effectiveness is governed by:-

  • Scheduling of transforming resources

  • Reliability of transforming resources

  • Eg’s – shipbuilding, construction projects, some surgery, restaurant


Process layout
Process Layout machines, equipment & staff in an operation (Slack, 2001)

  • Similar processes (or with similar needs) are located together

  • Utilisation of transforming resources is improved

  • Transformed resources move through the operation according to their needs

  • Different products  different needs different routes

  • May be very complex

  • Eg’s – supermarkets, some machine manufacture


Cell layout
Cell Layout machines, equipment & staff in an operation (Slack, 2001)

  • Machines or services grouped into cells

  • Cells determined by the process requirements of the family of product/services they transform

  • Could be considered mini product layouts

  • Can simplify a functional/process layout

  • Flexible

  • Duplicates some resources


Product layout
Product Layout machines, equipment & staff in an operation (Slack, 2001)

  • Locates the transforming resources entirely for the convenience of the transformed resources

  • Transformed resources follow a specified route

  • Flow is clear, predictable, easy to control

  • Eg’s – car assembly, paper manufacture, self-service cafe
