The CRAFT Method was at the basis of the development of the heuris-tic commuting models, in which one starts from an initial emplacement of units that is successively improved, through the successive commut-ing of units among them on the basis of some criteria. In the present paper we have resolved to the Facility Location and Layout module of the WinQSB program that uses the CRAFT Method in solving problems of the Functional Layout type.
