Manufacturing Facilities Design and Material Handling
Fred E. Meyers
For Junior/Senior level courses in Plant and Facilities Planning and Manufacturing Systems and Procedures. This textbook is also suitable for a graduate level course. This project-oriented facilities design and material handling textbook explores the techniques and procedures for developing an efficient facility layout, and introduces some of the state-of-the-art tools involved, such as computer simulation. A "how-to," systematic, and methodical approach leads students through the collection, analysis and development of information to produce a quality functional plant layout for a "learn" manufacturing environment.
