The goal of this project is to design a new tobacco sales floor for Tribac (Pvt.) Ltd. This project utilizes common facilities planning principles together with time studies, line balancing calculations, statistical control charts and simulation modelling to assist in the development of alternative facilities plans.
These alternatives are then evaluated resulting in the selection of the most practical layout which was then developed further, in greater detail. This detailed design could potentially form the basis for the future development of a new tobacco sales floor for Tribac.
This report also recommends suitable material handling equipment that could be incorporated into the facility as well as a possible solution pertaining to the allocation of personnel throughout the facility.
