Abstract

Line balancing is to distribute the task over the each workstation so that idle time of labor of machine can be minimized. Line balancing aims at grouping the resources or labor in an efficient and best pattern in order to obtain an optimum or proper balance of the resources and flows of the production or assembly processes. Assembly Line Balancing (ALB) is the term commonly used to refer to the decision process of assigning tasks to workstations in a sequential way to the production system. The task of elementary operations required to build raw material into a finished product.

Line Balancing is a classic Operations Research optimization technique which has significant industrial importance in a lean system. The concept of mass production essentially involves the Line Balancing in assembly of identical or interchangeable parts or components into the final product in various stages at different workstations. With the improvement in knowledge, the refinement in the application of the line balancing procedure is also a must. Task allocation of each worker was achieved by assembly line balancing to increase an assembly efficiency and productivity. In this paper, we discuss and analysis a vehicle manufacturing unit and suggest the options to increase the productivity through an assembly line balancing with the help of Pro Balance.
