TWO-SIDED ASSEMBLY LINE - Estimation of Final Results

Waldemar Grzechca

Abstract

The paper considers simple assembly line balancing problem and two-sided assembly line structure. In the last four decades a large variety of heuristic and exact solutions procedures have been proposed to balance one-sided assembly line in the literature. Some heuristic were given to balance two-sided lines, too. Some measures of solution quality have appeared in line balancing literature: balance delay (BD), line efficiency (LE), line time (LT) and smoothness index (SI). These measures are very important for estimation the balance solution quality. Author of this paper modified and discussed the line time and smoothness for two-sided assembly line. Some problems, which appeared during evaluations, are mentioned.
