When designing the project of a mill, a number of factors must be taken into consideration. The most important of these factors are the proximity of the mill to the raw material and to the market, the region the plant to be established, transport facilities, labor required for installation, maintenance and repair opportunities for machinery and equipment, and energy consumption.

In the design phase of a mill, determining the area where the mill will be constructed must be a decision made as a result of necessary investigations. That is, a number of factors need to be considered in the project of a mill. Of course, the first thing to consider is the economic benefit of the mill. For this reason, the design of an ideal mill must take into consideration the distance of the raw material to be processed to the production area and to the market where the end-product will be processed. The main factors to consider when planning an ideal mill are the product needed for the market, transport facilities, labor required for installation, maintenance and repair opportunities for machinery and equipment, and energy consumption. In addition, the city, region and even the country in which a mill plant will be built can affect the cost of the project during the establishment phase of the mill. In countries where labor is more costly, reducing the dependency on the workforce as much as possible and turning to solutions such as automation are some of the factors that may affect the project cost.
