In this type of layout the material or major component remains in a fixed location, and tools machinery and men as well as other pieces of material are brought to this location. The movement of men and machines to the product is advisable because the cost of moving time would be less than the cost of moving the product, which is very bulky.

Also called the fixed location layout this type is followed in the manufacture of bulky and heavy products such as locomotives ships boilers aircrafts and generators.
