Line Balancing

Line balancing is arranging a production line so that there is an even flow of production from one work station to the next i, e, so that there are no delays at any work station that will leave the next work station with idle time.

Line balancing is also defined as the apportionment of sequential work activities into work station in order to gain a high utilization of labor and equipment and therefore minimize idle time. Balancing may be achieved by rearrangement of the work station so by adding machines and or workers at some of the stations so that operations take about the same amount of time.
