ISE 2260 Work Flow & Facility Design

This course is an instructional perspective on optimizing the flow of a product between operations or within the organization or facility. Different types of workflow scenarios (such as Job Shop, and Production Line) will be used to teach the student to analyze the capacity needed and determine the best flow or layout required. Facility design considerations will be introduced for the situations where significant changes require increasing facility area or major changes to the current facility layout. Two classroom, two lab hours per week.

  • Determine the most efficient workflow, taking into consideration factors such as demand (level load, make to order, make to inventory, batch, continuous), resource constraints (equipment and employee capacity, activity relationships between equipment and departments), and space (building configuration, inventory systems, equipment layout).
  • Examine facility design including warehouse, manufacturing systems, and facility systems.
  • Calculate the load on a system so the equipment or workstation requirements can be determined.
  • Examine the different types of Workflow Layouts, such as Process, Product, and Family.
