Balance Analysis and Improvement of Flywheel Production Line
It studies the balance problems of cycle time of a flywheel production line in this paper. Based on the working time measured using lean manufacturing (LP) methods, the bottleneck processes of production line are found by simulating with software Witness, which is improved by using production cycle balancing method. Comparing the relevant parameters before and after the production line balance,the improvement results of production line are significant and the production efficiency can be improved.
