Consider the attached potential layout, expected material flow, and partial distance matrix for a machine shop.
Measure distances rectilinearly (N-S-E-W), between the centers of the department. What is the total flow * distance cost measure for this layout, assuming a $1 cost per unit/distance? (You will need to complete the distance matrix)
This solution calculates the total material flow cost for a given layout
