Paper Title:
Sequencing Mixed-Model Assembly Line under a JIT-Approach‌
  Abstract

Mixed-model assembly line is known to be a special case of production lines where various and different models of the same products are inter-mixed to be assembled on the same line. Using mixed model assembly line involves not only the traditional problems of assembly line design (i.e., determining the line cycle time, the number and sequence of stations of the line, and balancing the line) but also determining the sequence in which products will be scheduled for assembly. In each station, some components are assembled in the final products. Under just in time (JIT) approach; an objective is to have a fairly constant usage rate for each component going into final assembly to facilitate the use of Kanban or other JIT shop-floor systems. In this paper, a mixed approach, the sequencing mixed-model assembly line problem with a JIT-supply of required materials, ‌is studied and a mathematical model is proposed for solving it. The results are compared with a traditional approach. Some experiments are used to evaluate the performance of the proposed model.
