An automotive manufacturer is constructing a truck manufacturing factory in Korea and now enters the design step for each shop (body shop, paint shop, assembly shop). For the paint shop, manufacturer's design team has drawn up an initial design for himself. Several facility manufacturers have proposed the paint shop designs based on the team's initial design and required specifications of each facility. Now the team will analyze the proposed designs of facility manufacturers and evaluate the performance of the proposed design. The team will select a facility manufacturer from result of the analysis. In this study, a validity of basic facility layout concept and proposed operation policy in the initial design drawn up the team is analyzed using computer simulation technique. A way to improve the problems known from the simulation analysis and improved operation policy are proposed. The developed simulation model can be used in the verification of the validity of the initial design and operation concept and also the evaluation of proposed designs made in several facility manufacturers.Journal of the Korean Instituteof Plant Engineering
