Abstract: Facility layout refers to the arrangement of physical facilities within the manufacturing system in such a manner so as to have quickest flow of material at the lowest cost. This paper presents a methodology to design a layout considering two factors pick-up, dropoff location and sweep width pattern which differentiate with ALDEP (Automated Layout Design Program) algorithm. ALDEP is a construction type algorithm which develops a layout design by randomly selecting a department and placing in the layout by sweep width only once. In this paper, we designed the layout by the methodology in such a manufacturing system where pick-up and drop-off location are fixed. Also sweep width is taken twice in the proposed layout to form appropriate layout size which is explained by the proper algorithmic approach and numerical example
