DYNAMIC REAL TIME LINE BALANCING SOFTWARE
- Line balancing is the method of ensuring that machine capacity and operator capacities are used in such a way to get maximum productivity. Normally in a production scenario, different machines have different capacities, and different operators have different skills. Apart from machines and labor, the orders and scheduling of them have several variables leading to idle capacities in certain areas and excess capacities in certain areas.
- The advantage of dynamic programming software is that it converts the capacities and constraints to a mathematical simulation model and gives us precedence determination/operation sequence, and can quickly balance and visualize multiple lines and multiple operations, loading of multiple orders,and highlights the various hard and soft constraints. Also such softwares gives line balancing production the visual picture on several what-if scenarios, yamazumi charts,, value added analysis, top bottlenecks, real time production reports etc., One can try several heuristic trial and error solutions based on balancing algorithms leading to the total optimal solution.
- Hourly and real time production data fed into the software will guide the managers to take a considered data based solution and bring in team building.
- Past data and AI can be used to highlight, The operation with the longest cycle time, The number of preceding and succeeding operations and its effect on the total output, Shortest cycle time, Most suitable operator for each of the operations.
