Plant layout is the spatial arrangement and configuration of departments, work stations, machinery and equipment used in the conversion process. Layout of an apparel production plant directs the flow of materials and work-in-process from start till its completion and integrates material handling and equipment. An efficient layout has the flexibility to be changed to meet requirements of the product line, delivery schedules, and anticipated volume. Safety is a major consideration in plant layout. Fire and safety codes, emergency and accessible exits, open traffic areas, etc. must all be a part of layout plans . The following factors should be taken into consideration while planning a layout: Minimization of manufacturing costs Efficient work flow Minimization of work transfer Provision of future expansion

Selection of Factory Site Demographic, Infrastructural, Natural and Social factors should be considered before selecting a location for a factory site.

Demographic and Infrastructural analysis is all about understanding population age groups, per capita income, education level, occupational structure and availability of skilled and non skilled manpower, tech nically qualified and trained supervisors and managers, transportation cost, link roads, nearness to railway station, airport or sea port, bankin g and financial institutes..

Natural and social factors like climatic conditions, pollution, public hazards,

weight by models). local laws and regulations. generator. medical emergency room and provision for those governed by local laws. civic amenities and means of communication should also be analysed before selection of the layout. position. The aim of every layout is to maximize utilization of available space in order to speed up the material flow. Other factors that need attention before laying out the factory plan include ceiling height (3-3. electric panel. medical services. air conditioning machine. Highly specialized machines and small parts assembly may be configured with a line arrangement for final assembly. waste water recycling plant. lunch room. exit and passages (size. change room. water softening plant. the workplace should have sufficient number of men s and women s toilets and drinking water outlets .political problems. building structure. public utilities. number of each of them) for production as well as administrative wing. type of layout (product or process based or a combination of both) and arrangement of machines. Layout of the Plant Layout of the plant is decided based on process sequence. width. vacuum pumps. Factors to be considered for designing an effective layout include number of workers both male and female. air compressor. underground water storage tanks for boiler and washing machines. entrance. Also. drainage system are also equally important. number of machines (size. lavatories. Utilities like boiler.5 metres from floor). shop floor transportation. lighting (large windows of 2 or 3 stages) and illuminance levels (600 Lux for production and 800 Lux for inspection areas) besides ventilation.

Accordingly.

here all operators are facing in one direction. For one column of workers the centre table is on left. hence differential ease of bundle pickup and disposal. the service table at right is advisable. thus infrastructure cost for lighting will be more. Light source has to be separate for two columns of machine.Line Layout: The layout that has been chosen for the line is the most common method of arranging machines with centre table option. Centre table on the left side of the operator is always better for larger component. while for the other column of operators the centre table is on right. Material movement in this type of layout is lateral/vertical/zigzag. this is because additional extension space can be created at left side with comparative ease but creating additional space at right side of machine is difficult. Generally wiring is done underneath the centre table. and sewing machine motor is on right side of sewing machine table. For operations involving a two component assembly where picking has to be done from both right and left of the operators. . The arrangement is vaastu-friendly . so wiring for one column of sewing machine is cumbersome. As operators are facing same sides (regimental seating) they are less prone to talk.

The foot candle is an older British measurement that is largely being replaced by the metric -based lux.LIGHTING DIAGRAM Definition A light source emits a flow of energy measured by a unit of power called a lumen. The density of light that falls on a surface is measured in foot candles. A lux is one lumen of light density per square meter. as measured by a light meter. A foot candle is one lumen of light density per square foot.
