There are many challenges in manufacturing system for new factory construction. Although factories produce same product, the layout of each factory may be different. The body shop in an automotive factory is a typical flow line with assembly, but the layout concept of the line varies among factories. In this paper, two types of layouts in the body shops of automotive factories, one for layered build and the other for modular build, are compared using simulation study. The simulation experiments indicate that the modular build layout is better than the layered build layout with respect to production rate. The effects of various failure distributions on the throughputs are also investigated, and some insights are suggested regarding the layout concept.
