Assembly Line Balancing - A Review
Vrittika Pachghare | R. S. Dalu 
Abstract: Assembly line balancing is the method of assigning tasks to workstations by optimizing a performance measure while satisfying precedence relations between tasks and cycle time restrictions. Many exact, heuristic and metaheuristic approaches have been proposed for solving simple straight and U-shaped assembly line balancing problems. Worker heterogeneity leads to a problem called the assembly line worker assignment and balancing problem (ALWABP). This paper presents the reviews of assembly line balancing methods and tries to find out latest developments and trends available in industries in order to minimize production time.
Keywords: Assembly line balancing, Assembly line balancing methods, Exact Methods, Heuristic Methods, Metaheuristic Methods
