Plant Layout - Efficiency

Efficiency Measures of a Layout

Minimum Floor space: Efficient layout engineering can minimize floor space for a specified production output.

Minimum Materials Handling: Efficient layout results in minimum amount and cost of materials handling.

More Efficient Utilization of Machinery and Labor: An efficient layout eliminates general production delays, occasioned by congested aisles, cramped storage areas, crowding of machine layout, and improper materials handling devices, all of which lead to a slowing down of the production process as a whole and in general reduction in the output of goods from a given quantity of production machinery and labor.

Maximum flexibility of production facilities consistent with low cost of production: Production facilities and layout can be designed to attain flexibility and adaptability to meet changing economic and technological conditions.
