Facilities Planning and Design
The course seeks to introduce several key analytical methods and tools to support the design and the improvement of productive layout systems (in manufacturing and services). At the end of the course, students should be able to:
- Correctly design facilities layouts
- Characterized activities relationships.
- Planning and measure flows
- Plan facilities layouts
- Use computer-aided for facilities layouts.
- Correctly apply storage methods and warehouse configuration models.
