Cellular layout[edit]

Items[edit]

  • We have laid out the shop floor so that processes and machines are in close proximity to each other.
  • We have organized our plant floor by means of manufacturing cells.
  • Our machines are grouped according to the product family to which they are dedicated.
  • The layout of the shop floor facilitates low inventories and fast throughput.
  • Our processes are located close together, so that material handling and part storage are minimized.
