Abstract

The most desirable characteristic of a facility layout is its ability to maintain efficiency over time while coping with the uncertainty in product demand. This paper presents an FLP approach to deal with the uncertainty of each product demand in the design of facility layout. Two procedures are presented: the first procedure is utilized to determine for redesign, while the second procedure is for the facility layout design. The objective of the proposed FLP approach is to minimize the total risk associated with the developed layout.
