Study on Line Balancing for a Type of Lamp Assembling
This paper applied stopwatch to measure the work time of workstations on lamp assembling line. It studied issues effecting line production capability such as bottleneck workstations and superfluous capability. To overcome these shortcomings this paper suggests new line balancing schema. The schema includes reallocation of the work content, adjustment of the equipment and workers of each workstation. This improvement saves extra work shifts and reduces labor cost.
