Facility/Plant Layout


Designing an Effective Manufacturing Plant Layout.

Facility layout plays a critical role in maximizing an operation’s efficiency and throughput. An effective layout considers how people interact with machines, materials, and each other to produce and move products through the process. Care must be taken to accommodate all  required process steps including the location of raw materials, work-in-process, and finished goods. Safety is also a consideration as we must provide means of egress in emergency situations. Aisles must be sized to accommodate foot traffic as well as forklifts, pallet jacks, and other vehicles.

Nothing Replaces Experience in Plant Layout Design.

Although it may seem as simple as “let’s put this there and that here”, designing an effective Plant Layout is a challenging job. Nothing replaces the experienced eyes of an expert who has “been there and done that”, someone who has a proven track record of success in Plant Layout design. The Plant Layout Project Managers at Missouri Enterprise have designed literally dozens of dozens of successful and efficient Plant Layouts over the decades.
