Abstract: Facility Layout Design (FLD) problems are concerned with the arrangement of a number of facilities in a given space to satisfy an objective function; for example, minimizing total interaction. Data envelopment analysis (DEA) has been used in order to extract the necessary information for selection the optimal layout and arrangement of a number of facilities. In order to eliminate the inconsistency caused by using different frontier facets to calculate efficiency, common set of weights' DEA models have been developed, under which a group of DMUs can be ranked for a specific period.A new approach to determine the optimal distribution of process facilities based on the common set of weights DEA model is presented in this paper.
