Fabriekslayout in relatie tot intern transport: een verkennend onderzoek naar
Report 93.3.LT.4032, Transport Technology, Logistic Engineering.
Internal transport of materials and product components in relation to the
factory layout at B.V. Machinefabriek Figee has been analysed. Literary research
on factory layout problems has taken place, whereby special attention has been
paid to the method Systematic Layout Planning.
Internal transport of materials for the benefit of preliminary production
activities takes place along machines and is sufficiently efficient. The
transport distance (as important factor for Systematic Layout Planning) is of
no importance, because the transport time is inconsiderable compared with the
lifting and putting down of the material.
A new space planning method for product components has been developed, namely
location assignment to construction components. Two alternatives have been
worked out, whereby considerable internal transport manhour reductions have
been found. Furthermore, a conceptual model has been written for production
planning and production control.
The concept has been designed integrally by taking the product as starting
point. The conceptual model developed illustrates the advantage of
internal integration of information between several company
In the end, as an illustration, one partial function of the concept has been
implemented in a computer program from which it appears that is is simply
possible to translate the functions into a computer program.
