The facility layout problem can be formulated as a combinatorial optimization problem to minimize the total cost owing to material flow. Most of the paper is focusing on such a layout problem in two-dimensions. However it would be better to treat the layout problem in three-dimension (3 D) in order to minimize the distance between equipment and the land area. For bin-packing problem, there are some papers in 3 D, but in those model flow between bin is not considered. That’s why this paper proposed a 3 D-layout technique for unequal shape and area departments. Computational experiments are suggesting that proposed algorithm will produce better solution than plain layout which is the result of previous algorithm.
