abstract = "This chapter is concerned with the problem of physically arranging a set of two-dimensional departments inside a two-dimensional facility. Mathematically, the problem is to find the optimal placement of a given number of nonoverlapping indivisible departments, with a given area requirement for each department, so as to minimize the total cost of flows inside the floor. This single floor facility layout problem is often called the unequal-areas facility layout problem (UA-FLP), and it differs substantially from row layouts. The departments are now genuinely two-dimensional, and determining the optimal dimensions for each department such that the area requirements are met is part of the problem.",
