MetadataShow full item record
Today, facility optimization is one of the most important decision for the firms while establishing a new factory. It is necessary to carry work-in-process products between the production lines in firms. Many firms use trains to carry these items. In this study, an application is made in a furniture manufacturing factory. Firstly, the routes which the train can use in the firm are created. The alternative routes are compared with each other. The routes contain all of the production lines in the factory. Our aim is to route the train with minimum distance and minimum amount of cargo carrying. In this study, one train is used in the firm. It is also necessary to use minimum train for carrying the work-in-process products. The optimal route is determined by using some of the methods in the literature for multi-objective models.
