In this study, we deal with fuzzy variables to develop a methodology for optimizing layout problem under uncertainty using the principles of axiomatic design. Axiomatic design provides a brief framework to decision-making in the manufacturing process. We use axiomatic design principles to solve facility layout problem of a furniture company by using practical information taken from company official. Some taken information which are maintenance, visual control, quality (Judoka), flexibility, volatility about layout problem is not numerical. Therefore, it is necessary to use fuzzy principles in order to get better results. To optimize facility layout can improve operations and process of the company which provides better lead time and more customer satisfactions. As a result of the study, it is recommended to the wooden company to decide U type facility layout system for its production system.
