In layout planning the sites of operations, warehouses and production lines are determined. Properly done layout planning takes into account all required activities, handling and maintenance spaces, lanes and possible reservations for future needs and enables efficient material flows and effective use of space.
Layout planning is a crucial phase in new projects but also a good way to improve functionality of existing facilities. For instance, planning of new production facilities, warehouses, terminals and yards all contain layout planning. It is advisable to conduct rough planning already in an early phase when estimating space requirements. As the project advances the plan is taken to a more accurate level. Layout planning can help improve functionality and usage of existing spaces even without the need to make heavy structural modifications.
