Facility layout designs are one of the major studies in manufacturing engineering.
This thesis work involves the dynamic analysis of material flow in the facility
layout design with the help of simulation. The study is conducted taking the case
of Anbessa City Bus Service Enterprise Yeka Depot maintenance facility.
The study was done by first reviewing literature in the areas of facility layout
design and simulation. Then the operation and maintenance services of the Yeka
Maintenance Facility was analyzed by collecting the required data.
The stochastic model of the facility was developed with the help of Arena
Simulation package. To evaluate the performance the model is simulated for one
months period of time with four replication and the result observed. After
analyzing the result of the simulation different scenarios are developed to see the
possible improvements with appropriate modifications. At last conclusion and
recommendation is forwarded based on the ongoing analysis.|
