Welcome to Lesson 16 on the topic of the Conceptual Layout. In this lesson we are going to bring together the data you gathered, to create an initial block layout that focuses on the product and material flow.
Here’s what we will be discussing in this lesson on creating a Conceptual Layout:
1. Learn the steps that go into designing a Conceptual Layout. We do have a roadmap that describes these steps.
2. Why jumping directly to CAD is NOT your best option. There is a strong temptation to go right to CAD to create your layout. We’ll discuss why this may not be a good idea.
3. Inputs that must go into a Conceptual Layout. We’ll review in detail the inputs that will be needed, before you can start the layout activity.
