The objective of this research is to optimize fine blanking plant layout which manufactures precision automotive parts. For this the systematic layout planning theory (SLP) is used. In this study, brake caliper bracket manufacturing process is studied. The detailed study of the plant layout includes spaghetti diagram analysis, operation process chart, and activity relationship chart has been investigated. The new plant layout is designed and actually impleamented with obtained results mentioned below. Compared with the present plant layout, the new plant layout significantly decreased the distance of material flow, which has direct effect on material handling cost and manpower management. Also tool changeover time is significantly reduced, Thereby SMED Concept implementation is possible. Which also contributes in Lean Manufacturing Methodology.
