6.2 - Discussion: Facility Layout Research a firm that uses one of these two layouts. Describe your selected firm's layout and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each layout. Recommend changes that would improve your selected firm's layout. Eggo In a frozen food manufacturing company such as Eggo, a product-oriented layout is used. This type of layout refers to a production system where the work stations and equipment are located along the line of production, as with assembly lines (Leonard, 2018). Usually, work units are moved along by a conveyor. Work is done in small amounts at each of the work stations on the line. To use the product- oriented layout, the total work to be performed must be dividable into small tasks that can be assigned to each of the workstations (Leonard, 2018). Because the work stations each do small amounts of work, the stations utilize specific techniques and equipment tailored to the individual job they are assigned.
