An organization needs to pay close attention to facility layout to have an effective and efficient manufacturing unit. A facility layout is the proper arrangement of various aspects of manufacturing to achieve the desired production results.
The placement of facilities in the plant area, also known as the “facility layout problem,” has been shown to significantly impact manufacturing costs, work in process, lead times, and productivity.
Now, more than ever, organizations want their operations to be efficient and future-ready. To address the same, Team Faber Infinite has been helping clients with its proven and copyrighted methodology – Lean Facility Design© (LFD) framework. This unique methodology crafted by team Faber Infinite supports organizations to build best-in-class facilities and infrastructure from day Zero!
We have delivered phenomenal results in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, by implementing Lean Facility Design across various sectors such as:
- Automotive Component

With a combination of Industrial Engineering, Lean Management, and Project Management, the LFD methodology has been successfully deployed for best-in-class facilities.
Team Faber implemented LFD at one of the country’s largest FMCG players. Project planning, system-level conceptual design, value stream design at the functional level, and in-depth design at the operational level are all part of the process. The design also includes safeguards in case of a black swan event.
