Most of the problems involving the design and plan of manufacturing systems are combinatorial and NP-hard. A well-known manufacturing optimization problem is the assembly line balancing problem (ALBP). Due to the complexity of the problem, in recent years, a growing number of researchers have employed genetic algorithms. In this article, a survey has been conducted from the recent published literature on assembly line balancing including genetic algorithms. In particular, we have summarized the… CONTINUE READING
