Abstract [en]

The competition in the automotive industry moves forward and alternative production concepts emerge. Within assembly systems development the walking worker concept has been noticed as an interesting approach to level capacity to customer demand. One of the main disadvantages has been that each worker has to learn a large work content covering all stations in the line. This paper investigates an approach with a sectioned line divided into worker loops (streets) in order to overcome some of this disadvantage while maintaining the effectiveness and ability to align capacity to customer demand.
