Abstract
Hygiene improvements due to changing equipment location are discussed. Algorithms which minimize costs or related variables within an operation are given. MINISUM no longer dealing with minimizing transportation costs; MINIMAX which seeks to minimize the effects of the worst situation or maximum cost; MAXISUM which determines a position within a constrained region for which the weighted distances are maximized; and MAXIMIN which minimizes the maximum weighted distance from given facilities are described. The application of these methods, especially MAXIMIN, is given to equipment location so as to minimize the hazards associated with manufacturing facilities.
