Abstract

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.
