Assembly line balancing has been a focus of interest in Industrial Engineering for the last few years. Assembly line balancing is the problem of assigning tasks to workstations by optimizing a performance measure while satisfying precedence relations between tasks and cycle time restrictions. Line balancing is an important feature in ensuring that a production line is efficient and producing at its optimum. The process of Line balancing attempts to equalize the work load on each workstation of the production line. Mixed model assembly lines are increasing in many industries to achieve the higher production rate. This study deals with mixed-model assembly line balancing and uses Yamazumi chart to break down the work element in to the value added & Non-value added part to reduce the waste & increase the productivity.
