Now in Its Fourth Edition: Your Guide to Successful Facility Design

Overcome design and planning problems using the fourth edition of Facilities Design. Dedicated to the proper design, layout, and location of facilities, this definitive guide outlines the main design and operational problems that occur in manufacturing and service systems, explains the significance of facility design and planning problems, and describes how mathematical models can be used to help analyze and solve them. Combining theory with practice, this revised work presents state-of-the-art topics in materials handling, warehousing, and logistics along with real-world examples that emphasize the importance of modeling and analysis when determining a solution to complex facility design problems.

What’s New in the Fourth Edition:

The latest version introduces new material that includes handling equipment and systems, and presents relevant case studies in each and every chapter. It also provides access to Layout-iQ software, data files for many of the numerical examples that are contained throughout the book, and PowerPoint files for various chapters.

Additionally, the author:

  • Describes tools commonly used for presenting layout designs
  • Presents traditional models for facility layout including the popular systematic layout planning (SLP) model in detail
  • Provides a layout project involving the SLP model
  • Covers group technology and cellular manufacturing at the elementary level
  • Includes a project and case study on machine grouping and layout
  • Considers next-generation factory layouts
  • Discusses analytical queuing and queuing network models, and more

Facilities Design, Fourth Edition explains the ins and outs of facility planning and design. A reference for both student and professional, the book addresses facilities design and layout problems in manufacturing systems and covers layout, logistics, supply chain, warehousing, and materials handling.

  • Addresses the practical aspects of implementation
  • Strikes the right balance between theory and practice
  • Includes about 400 figures, 60 problems, and 10 case studies
  • Provides data files (a set for instructors and a set for students) and software programs
  • A solutions manual and PowerPoint slides are available upon qualifying course adoption
