This project explored the feasibility of lowering overhead costs for General Electric's Cincinnati Service Shops by eliminating the dock facility, Container Place 2. A modified Systematic Layout Planning technique was used to investigate the aircraft engine repair shops and their existing operations. Two consolidation plans for Container Place 2 were developed, including new facility layouts, cost-benefit analyses contrasting the plans against maintaining the present facilities, and action plans for necessary business process adaptations.
