BLS-109 Effective Line Balancing - Lean Manufacturing
Schedule and Hours
This course introduces the process of line balancing in lean manufacturing, which involves assigning tasks to workstations, so that workstations have approximately equal time requirements. Line balancing is used to minimize idle time and remove potential bottlenecks within a process.
Effective Line Balancing forms the core of every successful organization as they strive to increase productivity without incurring unnecessary costs gathers steam. Factors contributing to high costs such as excessive overtime and manpower, high level of inventory and idle time are all part of the results of poor line balancing. The need to deal effectively with the problems of production scheduling means more staff need to have a comprehensive understanding of the principles and functions of how production works and this course primarily aims to deliver the foundation to a more solid management.
