In the Assembly line layout, equipment and vessels are arranged in a central row that starts with the preparation phase and ends with a completed item that is ready to be taken to be served.
Island Layout has a central cooking station which has main equipment which then gradually layers out to storage units, washing stations, and food prep counters along its perimeter.
In Zone-style, each kind of activity that goes on in the kitchen is segmented into different zones such as Gravy station, Frying Station, Salad Station, Meat Station etc.
Galley Layout generally has all equipment and activities placed along the two parallel walls. Works for small and tightly packed kitchen areas.
An Open Kitchen layout is the most commonly found layout in most hospitality setups where customers get to see all the action going on in the kitchen area.
Many of these layouts work best with multiple cooks who are each responsible for one part of the food production process. Organising various processes and activities can be effectively allocated.
