Classroom exercise for IMSE 150 at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. This goal is to introduce freshman industrial engineering students to various aspects of industrial engineering and being an engineer. Plant layout and design is one of the key areas of industrial engineering. There are numerous issues that must be accounted for. A subset include: machine utilization, queueing space, and flow of materials. To provide students with an introduction to plant layout and design, let's consider designing a theme park. As we will see, many of the concepts will be the same.
