Abstract:The production facilities at Timmerije are found to be too busy at peak times, where products cannot be transported to the checking-area across the transportation path. When this situation takes place, unsafe situations occur where forklifts have to wait on each other. Due to the busyness at the production facilities, Timmerije is (almost) at its maximum with regards to capacity and is thus not able to grow further. An optimal layout of the production facilities is developed, which decreases the transportation distance and thus the busyness at Timmerije. In this way, the safety at the production facilities is also influenced positively.
