Abstract: the study’s goal is to help increase the productivity of the company by introducing a systematic layout plan in production department of VENRON Wood Home Craft Manufacturing Industry. Systematic Layout Planning application is the focus of the study to help improve productivity in the company an evaluation and workflow analysis to the current layout was used to identify the problems the company is experiencing using a fishbone diagram to represent it. A conceptual framework using IPO model was divided into several inputs and processes needed in proposing alternative layout. Process time study and layout planning tools such as from-to chart, activity relationship diagram, space requirement and block diagram will be used to develop and achieve alternative layouts The study resulted to a decrease in travel time and distance improving the productivity resulting to more production in a given time. A basic workplace safety manual for the company has been made to help the company and the workers gain knowledge and how, when and why should safety be in their practice. Cost-benefit analysis using comparative analysis will be calculated in the company’s result to production per day to determine on how does the proposed layout could affect and have benefit to the company. The result of the study is that proposing a new layout could really improve the production of the company producing more units per day compared to the current one.
