About the course
Plant layouts have a major influence on the operation of a plant. An improper layout design can lead to hazardous situations, impractical maintenance or reduced plant efficiency. These can have a significant financial impact for the owner of the plant. So understanding the various considerations that come with determining a plant layout is important for designing a proper layout.
In this course different considerations are discussed for different levels of layout design and applications. This will increase your understanding of what has to be taken into account when designing a plant layout. Topics include safety, proximity, maintenance, constructibility, practicality and economic considerations. After this course participants will have the knowledge to design a basic plant layout.
This course contains 3 online modules based on video content and exercises. An extensive case is included in the course, for which the solution is explained by the instructor.
You receive 1-year unlimited access to the course. This allows you to perform modules again, should you need to refresh your knowledge for your work projects.
