The Continuous Facility Layout Problem with Determination of Entrance and Exit Location

Chayathach Phuaksaman


The continuous facility layout problem with determination of entrance and exit location is addressed in this study. This study extends the basic continuous facility layout model by considering entrance and exit location which are location of material in flow and out flow of each facility. This extension is described as mathematical constraints and be added into the basic continuous facility layout model. The problem is formulated as Mixed Integer Programming and then solve by CPLEX Solver. Moreover for the problems with medium size a Partitioning heuristic is developed to solve the problem within this size. The computational result shows that heuristic can solve problems up to 50 departments within two hours. Moreover the heuristic shows better solution 50.44% within limited time
