A Decision Support Framework for FLP in the Context of Industrial Facilities by the Use of BIM

A Decision Support Framework for FLP in the Context of Industrial Facilities by the Use of BIM

Ulkucu, Yigitcan; Alacam, Sema;

Article:

In today's industrial production environment, an effective solution to the FLP(Facility Layout Problem) plays a significant role in deciding whether a facilitywill hold a competitive advantage against others by its improved workflow. Thisadvantage comes from an efficient placement of facilities, which mostlycontributes to the overall business performance. In addition to that, regarding theneed to answer the demands of the dynamic market, facilities need to adapt theirprocesses and adapt their production line as quickly as possible. Therefore, acontinuous search for a solution to the FLP is present. Although there are manyspace allocation programs available both as academic and commercial products,present approaches' availability in the BIM environment is not common yet. Thispaper introduces a decision support system framework which usesNon-Dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm-II (NSGA-II) to generate the mostappropriate solution in Revit Dynamo environment both in the earlier phases ofdesign and through the life-cycle of the facility. The proposed framework willspecifically be responsible for generating solutions for equipment location inserial production facilities. As NSGA-II is a Multi-Objective EvolutionaryAlgorithm (MOEA), a second optimization criterion is defined as the optimizationof the foreman's locations distributed on the shop floor. A Dynamo packagenamed Refinery will hold the optimization and evaluation procedures.
