Designing industrial facilities in AutoCAD is very different from designing the office and laboratory environments typically discussed at AEC-oriented shows and seminars. In factories the cost of moving equipment and automated material handling systems is significant, making their initial placement critical. In addition, factories are designed for the optimal flow of materials, which requires a significant quantitative review and can be very time consuming and difficult to present. This paper discusses the systematic approach to the design of industrial facilities and how this approach can be greatly simplified with the use of such tools as AutoCAD with FactoryFLOW
