Study on Balance and Optimization of Knitted Costume Sewing Assembly Line
Many Chinese knitted production enterprises are still adopting the traditional management model, making them face more and more problems in quality and productivity. This paper presents a method to balance and optimize the product line by using industrial engineering technique so as to promote production efficiency. The proposed method has been applied to the optimization of the assembly line of a knitted costume enterprise. The results show that the balance rate of the assembly line has been improved from 65% to 88% and the daily output capacity has been promoted from 738 pieces to 1116 pieces.
