1: Identify different types of layout inside the shipyard. (HINT: We may not be familiar with the complex manufacturing process of building ships, you may wish to start by displaying videos of the shipbuilding process to help us visualize the context)
2. What prerequisite assessment needs to be carried out before improving a facility layout?
3: What will be the impact of adopting a product-oriented layout and the theory of constraints (TOC) on work in progress and throughput?
4. Based on the description of the existing layout and shipbuilding process formulate the existing Muther’s GRID chart and propose a better chart for all shops and areas of the shipyard.
5. Propose a new improved layout based on the new chart.
6. What are the practical and monetary limitations that play a role in restructuring the shipyard
