This is a ARMY RESEARCH LAB ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND MD report procured by the Pentagon and made available for public release. It has been reproduced in the best form available to the Pentagon. It is not spiral-bound, but rather assembled with Velobinding in a soft, white linen cover. The Storming Media report number is A319682. The abstract provided by the Pentagon follows: The facility layout optimization tool (FLOT) is interactive software designed to assist in the evaluation and design of facility layouts. It consists of two programs. The first, the facility layout tool (FLAYOUT), is used to model the physical structure, the interior walls, and the workstation positions in a two-dimensional plane. The second program, the facility optimization tool (FOPT) , is used to solve the problem of arranging work stations within a facility in a way that will minimize interaction costs (e.g., human travel distance, paper flow, material handling, etc.). This users manual contains installation instructions, a tutorial, a technical discussion section, an appendix devoted to the optimization problem, and the software on a DOS-formatted 3.5-inch diskette. FLOT operation requires at least 4 megabytes of extended memory. Executable files of the two programs are provided for users with DOS-based personal computers. Users on other systems will need access to a FORTRAN77 compiler.
