This chapter gathers a variety of examples to illustrate the range of applications of facility layout. The main areas represented are manufacturing and hospital layout. This selection of examples is intended to give insight into the data that might need to be gathered and to illustrate that real data is not always available in a clear format. Some processing may need to be carried out before the data is ready for use with the mathematical optimization model.
