Abstract [en]

Increased production complexity challenges traditional methods for planning  and  preparation  of  assembly.  This  paper  addresses alternative approaches for assembly line balancing and an assembly plant  area  was  studied  in  a  cross-disciplinary  scenario-based analysis. Results show that the complexity in products, operations, flow, and organisation increases setting new demands on developing line balancing methods, including meeting the requirements and understanding the impact, e.g. competences, organization, support functions. Further research is suggested for increase knowledge of what impact different line balancing concepts has on performance, human work and working conditions as well as development of strategies and guiding principles for dynamic planning.
