Plant Layout design - links and definitions ..

An interesting document to refer is here ..

In manufacturing engineering, a product layout refers to a production system where the work stations and equipment are located along the line of production, as with assembly lines. Usually, work units are moved along a line (not necessarily a geometric line, but a set of interconnected work stations) by a conveyor.

In manufacturing engineering or in service industry, process layout is a design for the floor plan of a plant which aims to improve efficiency by arranging equipment according to its function. The line should ideally be designed to eliminate waste in material flows, inventory handling and management.
