Process layout is a machine of similar operation arranged at one place & Product layout - machines are sequenced on the basis of operation.

That's why in the automobile industry as parts manufactured differently and assembled in sequence.

In product layout machines are arranged according to the sequence of operations to be performed on the job. So this layout is used in automobile manufacturing industry.

A product layout groups different workstations together according to the products they work on while in process layout groups workstations together according to the activities being performed.

What is difference between product and process layout?

Because each part of the automobile is manufactured differently.

Taking into account that each part is a product then final assembly of the product is taken in another place.
