This session will show participants how to chart and visualize the relationships in any layout planning project.  The presenter will show participants how to combine measured material flow with subjective reasons for closeness or separation such as visual management, shared personnel, shared equipment, safety, contamination, and the like.  Using the rated-and-reason-supported relationship chart, you will learn how to record, interpret, and present hundreds of relationships and their reasons in a single, compact spreadsheet.  An electronic copy will be made available in Excel.  Participants will also learn a simple graphical technique for visualizing the ideal arrangement of activity areas or machines.

Note: This session stands alone but also explains the relationship charting and diagramming steps in the full SLP method.

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
  • Identify a method for capturing and recording all the relationships present in a layout or facility.
  • Identify a method of diagramming relationships and visualizing the ideal arrangement of activity-areas or machines.
  • Identify a visual method of auditing current or proposed layouts and the degree to which they satisfy the most important relationships.

Prerequisites

Who Should Attend:
  • Plant and production managers
  • Manufacturing, Industrial and Plant Engineers
