ASSEMBLY SYSTEMS FOR LOW PRODUCT DEMAND - Estimation of Final Results

Waldemar Grzechca

Abstract

The paper considers assembly systems for low product demand. In the last five decades a large variety of assembly line structures and solutions procedures have been proposed to balance assembly line. Author of this paper compares single assembly line and assembly rotating round table. Estimation of final results of balance of both structures is discussed. It is shown that implementation of different structures are appropriate for low product demand. Numerical example of design assembly single line and assembly rotating round table helps to understand mentioned structures.
