Box placement for one product variant
- 124 Downloads
In this chapter, we introduce an approach for reducing walking time at moving assembly lines by optimizing the line side placement of parts, given that there is only one product variant, or one set of operations and parts. This is an intriguing problem because each container position influences the worker walking times. Intuitively, it should suffice to order the boxes in the same sequence as the jobs in order to place each close to the point where its job is performed.
