  • Demand for customized products and proliferation of optimal features have increased the need for flexible assembly systems that are capable of simultaneously producing multiple versions of similar products. Serial assembly systems have traditionally been used for the production of a single product type, and more recently for mixed model production. In this paper, a nonlinear integer program is proposed as a model for the production line balancing problem (PLBP). This problem entails the… CONTINUE READING
