Assembly Line Balancing Methods - A Case Study
Vrittika V Pachghare | Dr. R. S. Dalu
Abstract: This paper present the application of assembly line balancing methods. The methods namely Rank position weight; larger candidate rule; and killbridge and wester methosd are used. The selection criterion was based on minimum assembly time for all methods. Three assembly line processing layouts were developed based on output of assembly methods The output that represent Cycle time 10 min improved line efficiency to 82.33 %; idle time 10.6 min; smoothness index 7.10 and increase production rate from 40 units to 48 units per day.
