Abstract(summary):

The mixed model assembly line is becoming more important than the traditional single model due to the increased demand for higher productivity. In this paper, a set of procedures for mixed-model assembly line balancing problems (MALBP) is proposed to make it efficiently balance. The proposed procedure based on the meta heuristics genetic algorithm can perform improved and efficient allocation of tasks to workstations for a pre-specified production rate and address some particular features, which are very common in a real world mixed model assembly lines (e.g. use of parallel workstations, zoning constraints, resource limitation). The main focus of this study is to study and modify the existing genetic algorithm framework. Here a heuristic is proposed to reassign the tasks after crossover that violates the constraints. The new method minimises the total number of workstation with higher efficiency and is suitable for both small and large scale problems. The method is then applied to solve a case of a plastic bag manufacturing company where the minimum number of workstations is found performing more efficiently.
