A study on facility layout helps to improve the existence facility layout. The efficiency of production depends on the number of production line, workers and machines available in the factory. This study is about the facility layout in Keropok Lekor 's factory, Zazihan Enterprise. All the existing layout in the factory is based on the owner's experience in the keropok lekor 's production process. The owner planned to modify the layout of the factory in order to facilitate the production process and also want to expand their market into the supermarket and hypermarket in the southern regions. To fulfil the market demand, this factory is looking forward to improve the existing efficiency in the production by space utilization and efficiency. The objectives of this study are to propose new layout improvement using 11 steps in systematic layout planning and to evaluate the proposed alternatives of layouts using Siemens PLM Software and some analysis. By improving the layout of the facilities, the production flow can be shortened and will be more effective and practical. Any constraints in the production flow will be considered in order to design the best layout which directly increases the productivity and quality of the process. The result of this study for the total distance for keropok lekor 's production process, before and after the simulation are 48.8 m and 22.3 m. By improving the facility layout, almost 26.5 m from the total distance of the production process has been eliminated. Opportunity for improvement for weighing and shaping process is necessary because it needs the competent workers to increase the rate of production. The use of machine in weighing and shaping process is really helping in fulfilling the demand of keropok lekor 's production for the company.
