ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

To my supervisor, colleagues, friends and family
With pleasure, I would like to express my gratitude to all people who have granted their time and effort in making this project a success. To all Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering Department Lecturers and staff for tirelessly and patiently devoting themselves, to unequivocal support and guidance during my five years of study. Special thanks go to my supervisor Eng. W. Goriwondo for creatively cranking me throughout the year. To my classmates, I say thank you so much for your patience, support and time, without which this project would have taken years to be finished. Thank you guys for keeping the learning spirit high and fun! To you all, I will forever cherish your love. Lastly, I gratefully acknowledge my indebtedness to my sisters and brothers and the Motsi family at large for the support and encouragement, I say to you, ‘your love and care will ever be cherished’.

ABSTRACT
The most significant objective of any enterprise has always been the maximum utilisation of facilities available to achieve the desired goal of productivity and profitability. Facility layout deals with the selection of the most appropriate and effective arrangements of departments, and utilities on the open continual plane to allow a greater working efficiency. Owing to the complex and unstructured nature of facility layout, many researchers have proposed various approaches which have not been perfectly successful when dealing with the complexities associated with the problem. It therefore becomes strategically appropriate to be set right the first time when planning to embark on a beverage manufacturing embargo, thus this report seeks to apply scientific methods to the process of facility planning on a beverage manufacturing plant setup. So in essence this project seeks to come up with the most feasible layout of departments and utilities for a non-alcoholic beverage manufacturing plant as a concession of various factors. The report is not conclusive as there can be other routines that can be used in order to come up with another good layout other than the one that is going to be come up in this project after using a technique called Systematic Layout Planning.
