Mixed model production lines are often used in manufacturing systems. In production lines, different product types are simultaneously manufactured by processing small batches. This paper describes a recently completed project involving the development of simulation models for a mixed model production line in a refrigerator company. Decision maker wants to determine the bottlenecks before changing the traditional line to a mixed model production line. Due to the enlarged number of models, the

Performance evaluation is an important phase in the design of assembly lines in a mixed model production environment. Simulation models helped us to identify production line bottlenecks and evaluate some number of suggested solutions.
