Combined Layout

The application of the principle of product layout, process layout or fixed location layout in their strict meanings is difficult to come across. A combination of the product and process layouts, with an emphasis on either is noticed in most industrial establishments. Plants are never laid out in either pure form. It is  possible  to have  both types  of layout  in an efficiently combined  form if the products  manufactured  are somewhat  similar  and not  complex.
