Production floor plan layouts,

This is one of the most consequential components of cost effective, lean and productive operational planning.


From basic equipment layouts that facilitate timely flow of product(s) through to the utilization of available space, to the determination of and accommodation of all requisite resource(s); Floor layout planning can either accommodate 'change'... or hamper it.


While many software aids are available to assist with the positioning of physical hardware from basic CAD to quite sophisticated, expensive and voluminous programs, etc., a clear, strategic understanding and shop savvy is necessary to pull it all together.


What, in your opinion is the most impacted KPI (Key Production Indicator) associated with a poorly considered or incomplete Production Floor Plan?
