Abstract: This research presents a group layout for wood furniture production that provides reduced manufacturing lead time in producing mixed wood furniture products. Production of the mixed wood furniture products can be detailed and complicated. The products include small lots of various models and designs. In addition, the make-to-order strategy for supplying customer demand can present problems leading to excessive production time. Group Layout is applied to the manufacturing shop Floor. Complete Linkage Clustering (CLC) and Bond Energy Analysis (BEA) is used to form groups of parts and machines, and inter- and intra-group movement is measured for the CLC or BEA selection. Subsequently, the simulation models of the existing system and Group Layout are built. The results indicate that the Group Layout can reduce manufacturing lead time by 32.89%, which increases manufacturing response time by 20.87 hours.
