Problem 6-17
Ten labs will be assigned to the circular layout shown. Recalling a similar layout’s congestion in the halls, the new lab manager has requested an assignment that will minimize traffic between offices. In addition, movement in the halls is restricted to a counterclockwise route. Develop a suitable layout using the following information.|
