Layout planning of machinery and equipment is fundamental problem in each plant. The aim of layout method of machinery and equipment and offices is layout planning of manufacturing machines and stations, offices in different parts of manufacturing and service organizations. If all of products are the same, factory layout planning will be relatively easy; the problem starts when products are various and each will have its manufacturing process. Nowadays the concept of customization manufacture or mass customization replace to traditional methods of mass production. In order to overcome the complexity of custom manufacturing that potentially to be created in system of manufacturing, can used way for making cell to divide small and manageable parts. In layout of cell is usually used production flow analysis technique for cell classification; this paper presented a methodology based on clustering processes for layout planning of different products. The steps proposed of this methodology is presented that focuses on the data conversion with the most information algorithms to establishment of equipment and based on to calculate similarity coefficient, manufacturing cells are formed.
