Line Balancing
- Line: an assembly line composed of various work stations, at which particular operations are performed.

1. Estimating number of operators for a specific number of stations,
2. Work element sharing: grouping “activities” each work elements into “stations” or jobs performed by a single person (occasionally multiple people work in concert at a single station or machine)
