Cascading Flowline Layout Design with Capacity Constraints

Abstract:

Article Preview

This paper describes a computer-assisted approach that integrates flowline layout design and functional layout capacity planning. In this layout problem of flow manufacturing, the parallel arrangement of the flowlines allows the placement of linear material handling aisles between pairs of adjacent flowlines. An algorithm based on longest common subsequence analysis is proposed and validated using a case study. At the same time of layout planning, the need for machine duplication is examined with capacity constraints.
