Abstract:
ABSTRACT This master thesis has been carried out at Eicher Tractor in order to answer the question “how will line balance efficiency change when following a modularization concept with fishbone layout instead of doing lots of different tasks in the main assembly line?” Currently a lot of different tasks are made in the main assembly line which due to the high product variety causes line balance efficiency losses. In order to do this study, a concept of modularization in production with a fishbone layout has been studied. This concept has been modeled with discrete event simulation in order to find the balance efficiency in the final assembly. The current final assembly has also been modeled in order to find out the line balance efficiency in production today.
