Line Balancing in Manufacturing | Training
Effective Line Balancing forms the core of every successful organization as they strive to increase productivity without incurring unnecessary costs gathers steam.
Cellular manufacturing produces families of parts within a single line operated by machinists who work only within the line or cell.
After going through Cellular Manufacturing & Line Balancing training participants will understand and learn about:
- Understand the fundamentals of Assembly Line balancing and Line Balancing in Lean Manufacturing.
- Learn about the benefits and drawbacks of Cellular Manufacturing.
- Understand the Line Balancing Algorithms.
- Learn about designing complex manufacturing cells.
- Understand the application of Line Balancing in assembly and production lines.
- Understand the sequencing and scheduling problems in any operating system.
- Learn about the methods of Line Balancing in production.
