Facilities, Facilities Layout, Zero and one modelling.


The equipment layout is one of the most important issues in the manufacturing company, because with the proper alignment equipment can reduce material transportation costs significantly. This article presents a mathematical model to determine optimal facilities layout in advanced mold Iran Khodro factory's assembly unit. The model mentioned model is kind of zero and one mixed that is derived from Tompkins. The objective function of model is to minimize transportation costs. The model is solved by Lingo software and its output determines the best location of machines.
