Abstract—In this paper a problem of two-sided assembly line balancing problem and Just in Time strategy is considered. Problem of assigning tasks to assembly line is known more than 60 years. Different balances occur in different quality of final results. Smoothness index (SI), time of line (LT) and line efficiency (LE) help to estimate the ends solutions. Additionally detailed idle times are described. In production systems products are assembled in required quantity directly to the market. One of the critical elements in Just in Time strategy is smooth flow production process. Author tries to connect assembly line balancing problem with this strategy. A numerical example is calculated and conclusions are presented.
Index Terms—Assembly line, estimation of final results, just in time strategy, two-sided assembly line structure.
