Layout analysis of dynamic facility by different technique
Author(s): Prem Narayan Ahirwar, Dr. Pankaj Agarwal
Abstract: Facility layout approaches have Assume to infinite capacities for the production system and material handling to determine the layout analysis. This study conducts research on addressing dynamic facility layout designs in which the demand varies from one time period to the next while taking into consideration finite capacity constraints for both the logistics and production systems. The research uses a genetic algorithm to develop the facility layout for each time period. Simulation studies are conducted for the developed layout to determine if Demand can be met for the given time period. The research develops functions that can be used to evaluate the costs of changes in the parameters, such as increased production capacity increased material handling capacity or a combination of both parameters to meet the demand. The aim of this research is to minimize the material handling cost of layout and design under dynamic condition.
