Mixed-model assembly line sequencing problems
The paper develops a comprehensive classification of mixed-model assembly lines from which four categories of model sequencing are derived. Each category aims at satisfying one or both of two objective criteria, the one minimizing the overall line length, and the other minimizing the thruput time. Approaches for solving the sequencing problem in each category are presented. The paper suggests a design strategy that can be followed by designers of mixed-model assembly lines. Specific topics requiring further research are also defined.
