Perfect! That looks like a winner. Exactly what I was hoping to find.

comment Algorithm to use for shop floor layout?
@FrustratedWithFormsDesigner I was thinking the exact same thing. I'm curious if anyone comes up with anything else but if left to my own devices this would be my approach. Basically generate a bunch of different graphs based on the different potential layouts and then calculate which graph has the least total weights. Feel free to make that an answer instead of a comment. I think it is a legitimate one.

comment Entity Framework with large systems - how to divide models?
@Nik I'm not just concerned about runtime performance but also design- and build- time. I've read some horror stories of using EF models against DBs of this size and have Visual Studio choke on them.

comment Entity Framework with large systems - how to divide models?
This seems like a good strategy, but doesn't really address the question of how to divide entities across different EF models. Do you have all entities in one model or do you divide and conquer in some way?

comment Entity Framework with large systems - how to divide models?
@Tjaart thanks. I have used MS DTC before and while it is pretty simple, it does add complexity beyond a simple DB txn so I want to avoid it whenever possible.

comment How do you follow the single responsibility principle in classes responsible for behaviour?
It seems like you have your behavior organized in the wrong manner. Why would the controller depend on the state of the view? This is generally a code smell if you are trying to do MVC correctly. It sounds like you are not encapsulating behavior enough, and that every class needs to know "the business" of every other class.
