Abstract

This paper focuses on an empirical layout improvement project. In the implementation process of the project, the authors followed an enhanced procedure to increase the involvement of the area experts in the layout design process, which assured the successful realisation of an appropriate layout solution satisfied to both the project team and the top management of a case company. In this paper, the project, the enhanced procedure and the designed new layout for a shop floor in the case company by applying the procedure are introduced, and the summarised evaluation on the new layout and the enhanced procedure is also presented.</p> AB - <p>This paper focuses on an empirical layout improvement project.
