Distance measure is one of the most important component in facility layout problems. Many distance approaches have been proposed so far. However, there is no method that can always give a satisfactory solution to every situation. In this paper, first we review on some distance methods, then we present a new strategy for comparative points in facility layout with fuzzy logic, which it is very useable, specifically when it is hard (or impossible) to use other methods to solve uncertain points. Finally, some numerical examples illustrate the presented method as well as comparing it with other various ones.
