Assembly line balancing

Abstract Assembly lines are flow-line production systems which are of great importance in the industrial production of high quantity standardized commodities and more recently even gained importance in low volume production of customized products. We aim to assign the tasks to the workstations so as to minimize the total squared workload. Our computational study has revealed the satisfactory behavior of our mathematical model and branch and bound procedure.

Assembly line balancing: Which model to use when? - ScienceDirect

This gap might result from research papers focusing on just a single or only a few practical extensions at a time. Get Access Get Access. In spite of the great amount of extensions of basic assembly line balancing ALB there remains a gap between requirements of real configuration problems and the status of research.

We aim to assign the tasks to the workstations so as to minimize the total squared workload. Recommended articles Citing articles 0. Accordingly, this attracted the attention of researchers, who tried to support practical configuration planning by suited optimization models.

By balsncing you agree to the use of cookies. This paper considers a simple assembly line balancing problem with fixed number of workstations and prespecified cycle time. Real-world assembly systems require a lot of these extensions to be considered simultaneously. Due to high capital requirements when installing or redesigning a line, configuration planning is of great relevance for practitioners.

By doing so, open research challenges are identified and the practitioner is provided with hints on how to single out suited balancing procedures for his type of assembly system.
