Project title Development of a method for quantitative, multidimensional factory layout planning by mathematical modeling of relevant characteristics for factory planning (MeFaP)
Project duration 15.11.2017 – 14.11.2019
Press release

The quality of a factory layout significantly influences the market-oriented production and thus the economic success of a company. The effectivity of a factory planning project therefore depends on the quality of the layout planning.

At the moment there are several procedures for facility layout planning: manual planning by experts and automated planning using methods from Operations Research. Both methods are limited in their evaluation methods. The factory evaluation is either qualitative and multidimensional or quantitative, but limited to a few objectives. In order to overcome these deficiencies, a method for the quantitative, multidimensional ad hoc factory evaluation has been developed in the previous project "QuamFaB". Based on this, it is now possible to make the layout planning more efficient.

The goal of the research project "MeFaP" is to develop a method for quantitative, multidimensional factory layout planning, which reduces the planning effort compared to conventional methods and at the same time improves the quality of the planning results. Thereby companies should be enabled to execute factory planning projects independently.
