      Abstract

      Due to intense competition between mass production manufacturers, they offer much more personalized product to the consumers. It used to be tremendously expensive, but the chance opened up by the technology advancement causing the idea of mass customization to be much more feasible. The concept of Made to Shock (MTS) is noe slowly shifting to Made to Order (MTO) type as it has better demand nowadays. This study was carried out to desing a production layout for an MTO furniture enterprisetaking onto consideration the ergonomic risk factors in order to ensure a better efficiency and safer production place. The previous place of the enteprise had so many issues hencean action reserch from the previous production place to a much proper one was carried out which includes studies of the layout would suit the best for the small enteprise. The important of having an efficient production place is to shorten and stabilize the timeline of the orders. Hence the production timeline was also observed and some feedback form the customers became a quantitative responding variable to the action research. However it was found that, these two may not be a strong indicator to measure the efficiency of the production place due to many other changing factors during the period.
