Balancing Machining Lines: a Two-phase Heuristic

Mohamed ESSAFI, Xavier DELORME, Alexandre DOLGUI
2010 Studies in Informatics and Control  
This paper considers balancing machining lines with parallel machines and sequence-dependent setup times. The goal is to minimize the number of machines for a given cycle time.  ...  Such lines are paced, i.e. parts are moved from one station to the next with a given cadence (defined by the line cycle time). At least one machine is installed at each station.  ...  These lines are composed of multi-spindle machines where several operations are executed simultaneously using special equipment (multi-spindle heads).  ...
