Assembly Line Design: The Balancing of Mixed-Model Hybrid by Brahim Rekiek

By Brahim Rekiek

Efficient meeting line layout is an issue of substantial business significance. regrettably, like many different layout tactics, it may be time-consuming and repetitive. as well as this, meeting line layout is frequently advanced due to the variety of a number of parts concerned: line potency, fee, reliability and house for instance. the most target is to combine the layout with operations concerns, thereby minimising its costs.

Since it truly is most unlikely to exchange a designer’s intelligence, adventure and creativity, it is very important supply him with a collection of tips instruments in an effort to meet the conflicting pursuits concerned. Assembly Line Design provides 3 thoughts according to the Grouping Genetic set of rules (a robust and largely acceptable optimisation and stochastic seek process) which are used to assist effective meeting line design:

• ‘equal piles for meeting lines’, a brand new set of rules brought to house meeting line balancing (balancing stations’ loads);

• a brand new procedure in keeping with a a number of target grouping genetic set of rules (MO-GGA) aiming to accommodate source making plans (selection of kit to hold out meeting tasks);

‘• stability for operation’ (BFO), brought to accommodate the adjustments throughout the operation section of meeting strains.

Assembly Line Design might be of curiosity to technical group of workers operating in layout, making plans and creation departments in in addition to managers in who are looking to examine extra approximately concurrent engineering. This ebook can also be of price to researchers and postgraduate scholars in mechanical, production or micro-engineering.

Example text

A population of solutions is maintained and the evolution plays the role of adaptation of a population to its environment. This adaptation causes the creation of individuals of increasingly higher ‘fitness’. The best solutions are favoured for reproduction every generation and the offspring are then generated from these fit parents using crossover and mutation. Thus, evolution drives the population of better individuals [69]. 4 Evolutionary Combinatorial Optimisation 33 The standard GA can be summarised by the following steps: 1.

Indeed, the process time of a station is not always the sum of the operating times of each equipment in the group because of the so-called hidden times (see Chapter 7). Dynamic Time. In the case of human workers, systematic reductions are possible due to the learning effects or successive improvements of the production process. For new tasks, operators take longer times to execute the operation than after becoming familiar with them. 3 Line Configuration In the plant layout problem, emphasis is often put on material flow between departments.

The individuals are then ranked using PROMETHEE II. At each iteration of the main loop, the better solutions are selected from the current population. Recombination produces a number of new individuals. The mutation is used to explore the search space and then the offspring is incorporated into the original population. Again, individuals are ranked using the MCDA and the loop finishes when the termination criteria are satisfied. The basic features of the MO-GGA are presented in the following pseudo-code.
