Event Details

Renowned Factory Layout Educator and Practitioner – Lee Hales will be conducting a lecture and Question and Answer session on the Systematic Layout Planning methodology which is used throughout the world to support additions and realignments of existing factories as well as in planning new operations.

This fast-paced overview of Systematic Layout Planning (SLP) shows you how to eliminate and avoid the waste from poor layout of activities and equipment. Used by thousands of planners around the world, SLP is standard practice in leading multinational firms and an essential step in their lean and world-class manufacturing programs. SLP is the fastest way to assure: focused factories and value stream layouts; minimum material handling effort; flexibility and adaptability; better utilization of people, equipment and floor space. In addition to better layouts, SLP typically knocks weeks and even months from the time that is normally required to decide on rearrangements and expansions.

Lee will be available after the presentation for follow-up discussion.

Lee is the author and co-author of several books on industrial planning, including: Systematic Planning of Industrial Facilities (with Richard Muther) and Computer-Aided Facilities Planning.
