Abstract:

This paper presents a genetic algorithm-based model for facility layout. Layout of departments consisting of finite elements is modelled in gene structures. Better and better solutions that satisfy multiple objectives are produced by employing genetic operations to these genes. Better quality layouts are obtained by this method on the test problems available in the literature. These results show the potential for solving complex facility layout problems.
