This study seeks to present a simple assembly line design and its balance for a low‐volume manufacturing company.
The study presents experiences with the design and implementation of a simple assembly line. The implementation concerns three aspects; design and construction of the assembly line, the assembly analysis of the product, and then balancing of the line. It also discusses construction and implementation difficulties of this tactical tool in the case company.
The study presents some outcomes from the design, implementation, and balancing of an assembly line for SMEs.
The study is limited by the case company and its experience.
This study is not pure theoretical study, it has application stages for industry, and it provides some real interface for the people from SMEs.
The approach has an original value in respect of implementation of assembly line for a small manufacturing company which has many limitations.
