Outline

Facilities and Logistics is one of the oldest activities of Industrial Engineers. The size of investment in new facilities and re-investment in old facilities makes the field of facilities and logistics a substantial part of Industrial Engineering activities. Over 250 billion dollars will be spent annually in the United States alone on facilities that require planning or re-planning. In this course we learn how to design a manufacturing plant.

We start from product design and end up with plant design. The stages of this design process are; Feasibility studies, Product design, Process design, Capacity planning , Machine requirement planning, Material flow system design, Job-shop, Flow-shop, and Cellular layout analysis, Production space requirements, Material handling equipment requirements, Storage and Warehousing, Personnel services, Administrative services, Plant services, Production and service activity interrelationships, Site and location selection, Site orientation and relationship with the infrastructure facilities.

The course is a combination of qualitative techniques and quantitative approaches as well as the state of the art software implementation.

Text book

Facilities Planning, Tompkins, White, Bozer, Frazelle, Tanchoco, Trevino, 2nd edition, John Wiley, 1996. The book is accompanied with extensive lecture notes by Dr. Asef-Vaziri. Lectures are not repetition of the text book.

Term Project (40%)

Midterm report 10%

Final report 25%

Detail requirements of the term project is included in the Term Project handout.

Each group is also assigned a project related topic for presentation in class. It is not necessarily related to the product proposed in the term project..

Assignments, (20%)

Lab assignments 10%

Lecture assignments 10 %

There are 10 lab assignments. They are due at the end of each session. Late assignments are not accepted. Students are expected to come to the lab on time and spend at least one hour working with the software. Late advent or early leave each result in half credit.

There are 4 lecture assignments. They are due at 12.30 of the corresponding day. Late assignments will be accepted until 12.30 of Friday of the corresponding week for half credit. While students are extremely encouraged to have group discussions, copying of two individuals or two groups are strictly forbidden.

Exams (40%)

Mid-term 15%

Final 25%

There will be a mid-term and a final closed book exam.

While attending the lectures is not mandatory, the students are strongly recommended to attend all lectures and come to class on time. Class discussions play a substantial role in both exams and term project.

Academic integrity

All students at the USC have an inherent responsibility to uphold University principles of academic integrity and to support each other and the faculty in maintaining a classroom atmosphere that is conductive to orderly and honest conduct. All students are expected to be familiar with the academic integrity guidelines found in the 1999-2000 SCampus. The guidelines presented in SCampus strictly apply to every course taught at USC.
