Paper Title:
Research on Simulation and Optimization of Facility Layout in Flexible Manufacturing Workshop
  Abstract

The Facility layout of flexible manufacturing workshop is designed under process principle, which is suitable for medium and small batch production.However, large WIP is produced under this facility layout model, and the material transport is relatively disorderly, the production cost is caused very high. Aiming on the problem, the facility layout with variety of materials is researched, and the mathematical model of lowest logistics cost is established with the total logistics cost as the objective function. Finally, according to the workshop equipment layout optimization process, the simulation mode in unit is established with the computer simulation software eM-Plant, and the logistics cost is optimized and compared with the initial result.
