Abstract : This paper studies the Facility Layout Problem FLP of a first tier supplier in the automotive industry. This complex manufacturing system involves multiple facilities, complex products, and layout reconfiguration constraints. One of the key requirements of this particular system is the need for high levels of flexibility in the reconfiguration of the layouts. This problem is formulated as a mixed-integer programming MIP, based on a FLP model with multiple objectives and unequal areas. The model allows for two re-configuration types: small and large changes. We explore the application of optimization methodologies to produce efficient and flexible layouts.

Keywords : Facility layouts re-layouts flexibility optimization
