Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Society plays a huge role in determining a company's facility location and layout.If a the facility is located in an area where only a certain pattern of buildings are allowed,then they have to follow suit.The location also matters because a facility that polutes the environment cannot be put up in a residential area where the residents would be uncomfortable.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
