Abstract

Puck Custom Enterprises (PCE) has experienced tremendous growth resulting in a need for a facility expansion and additional manufacturing equipment. PCE opened their first manufacturing facility in 2010 producing dragline systems for manure spreading applications. They quickly grew out of their facility resulting in four expansions in 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015. PCE has once again grown out of their facility. There’s an insufficient amount of facility space and manufacturing equipment to handle their customers demand. PCE is planning on another expansion, they are unsure of how to layout the new facility and where to place the machines. Facility design is one type of job that graduates of industrial technology can pursue. There are many other companies looking to design new facilities or redesign old facilities. The techniques used to solve PCE’s problem are commonly used by these graduates and companies to similarly layout their facilities.
