Abstract
The plant layout consists of mechanical units, machines, material handling devices the path of the product and raw material movement, production flow and the distances between the departments. The designing of a new plant layout means to achieve remarkable improvement in efficiency, manufacturing cost, lead time, travelling distance and overall production cost and it is done by reallocating the equipment’s positions in the layout. This study was carried out by taking the case of forging shop in SIFL. This paper is a combined study of plant facility reallocation with the help of Computerized Relative allocation of Facility Technique (CRAFT) and simulation study carried out by using ARENA simulation software. The best plant layout model identified by CRAFT by trial and error method and the best layout is analyzed using ARENA. The main of this paper is to redesign the plant layout in order to achieve better plant layout utilization and improve efficiency of the plant
