The problem of balancing line in garment industry is a big problem and it is difficult to find the optimal solution. Setting up the industrial sewing line by manual method, based on the experience of the line manager takes a long time while the line efficiency could not be highly achieved. This study has adopted three different heuristic methods to build a solution for the sewing line balancing and applied these methods for a typical case of Vietnam garment firm. The results show that applying
