Abstract: The problem of workshop layout was highly considered in literature and several methods, which are widely used nowadays, were proposed namely: the method of links, the average ranks method, the method of the anteriorities, the method of the nearness. The machine layout problem seeks to find the optimal arrangement of machines within each cell. We will contribute to the resolution of this problem by proposing a new method. To do so, we will adapt a vote method as this of Schulze for the setting-up of the workshop. Then, we will compare its results to those of the average ranks method. These methods will be applied to data which are results of our previous works. These data are the families of manufacturing sequences obtained thanks to the classification method of manufacturing sequences based on the language theory.
