By using the method Simplified systematic layout planning, three proposals have been made. To give the clearest picture as possible of the layouts, all machines and buildings were drawn in a 3D CAD-program called Solid Works. This will also give the company resources to continue to work with the material in case of another expansion. Suggestion D scored the most points in the valuation and is considered to be the best solution. It is based on a big central storage and a compact machine park. The suggestion provides a smooth flow through the production line and short distances between machines while having large spaces for storage and assembly. During the course of this paper a few instances of superfluous transports, bad storage handling and lack of order have been detected.
