Abstract: Facilities layout design is one of the key factors for successful newlineoperation in manufacturing firm The term facility in the manufacturing newlinecontext includes machines workstations and inspection stations The newlinetraditional problem of facility layout in a manufacturing setting is defined as newlinethe determination of relative locations for and allocation of the available newlinespace among a given number of machines Developing a machine layout is an newlineimportant step in designing manufacturing facilities due to the impact of the newlinelayout to material handling cost and time and consequently affects the overall newlineproductivity of the shop floor Poor layout would result in having more parts newlinespending longer time moving from one machine to another and thus results in newlineincreasing material handling costs In contrast to the block layout the objective newlineof the machine layout problem is to find the appropriate placement of newlinemachines in a cell newline newline
