Industrial Engineering knowledge can be applied to businesses that operate ineffectively in order to save time, money, space, energy and other resources. The knowledge gained during the study of Facility Planning Layout Design can be used to improve a company which is currently operating at a subpar level. By gathering the necessary information, investigating alternative techniques and conducting appropriate calculations, the layout of the company can be improved in a way that will allow for better utilisation of resources.
