Process optimisation is a major decision problem when drawing a balance between work distribution of workers during processing and maintaining requirement as per demand of customer. Process flow analysis technique is useful tool to optimise the process parameters in process type of industry. A facility layout is the arrangement of considerable activities, features, spaces and relationship that exists between them. The layout design generally depends on the products variety and the production volumes.There are various types of machine layouts, namely fixed product layout, process layout, product layout and cellular layout. In Fixed product layout, the products generally circulate within the production facilities like machines, workers, etc. and product does not move. Process layout groups facilities with similar functions together. Product layout is used for systems with high production volumes and a low variety of products.
