In this report, both the theoretical and practical layout of a manufacturing company has been presented. Basically, the Scientific method was used to gather, analyze and evaluate data. This was required for an optimum arrangement of facilities, including personnel, operating equipment, storage space, materials handling equipment and all other supporting services. The new layout will reduce the handling and transportation of materials by 74%. i.e. the new arrangement of facilities will require only 26% of travel to accomplish the same objectives. This represents an annual savings of 15.5 million feet of distance that is presently travelled.
