Development Of Plant Layout Using Systematic Layout Planning (SLP) To Maximize Production – A Case Study
The objective of this research is to study the existing plant layout of a nacelle production unit and to design a lean
plant layout using SLP (Systematic Layout Planning) to increase its productivity. Analysis of the existing plant layout was
made by studying aspects like flow of materials, activity relationships and space requirements. New plant layout alternatives
were designed and compared to the existing layout. The new plant layout finally selected showed a significant decrease in the
distance of material and work flow travel and resulted in increasing the productivity of the unit.
