As material handling is the fundamental activities in manufacturing system, it is necessary to keep the handling cost within the minimum limit. Though there are many available algorithms for material handling, here a completely new algorithm has been developed to improve layout aiming to optimize the material handling cost and empirically tested for the better understanding and comparison with Genetic Algorithm.
