Line balancing

AVIX offers a range of software tools that help optimize and improve production processes, one of which is Line Balancing. Line Balancing is a technique used to balance the workload across different workstations or assembly lines in order to improve efficiency and productivity. By using AVIX’, companies can optimize their production processes and maximize their output.

LINE BALANCING IS ESSENTIAL IN PRODUCTION PROCESSES AS IT HELPS TO:

  • Reduce cycle time
  • Increase throughput
  • Improve productivity and efficiency
  • Eliminate bottlenecks
  • Reduce waste and production costs

 

By balancing the workload across different workstations or assembly lines, companies can ensure that each workstation is operating at its maximum efficiency, with no idle time or excessive work content. The result is a more efficient and streamlined production process that reduces production costs and increases overall profitability.

AVIX’s Line Balancing module is designed to make the process of balancing workloads simple and straightforward. The software allows users to input information about the production process, such as cycle times and workstation capacities, and thereby visualize the optimal allocation of tasks across different workstations or assembly lines.

The Line Balancing module also allows users to make easy adjustments to the allocation of tasks (drag and drop), enabling them to test different scenarios and find the optimal balance of workload across workstations. This feature provides companies with the flexibility to adapt to changes in production demands or capacity, ensuring that they can maintain an efficient production process over time.

Overall, AVIX’s Line Balancing module is an essential tool for companies looking to improve their production processes and maximize efficiency. By using AVIX, companies can balance workloads across workstations, reduce cycle time, increase throughput, and improve productivity and efficiency. The end result is reduced production costs and increased profitability.

ELIMINATE BOTTLENECKS

The General Analysis Report shows how much time is Value Adding (VA) and Non Value Adding (NVA), as well as Semi-VA and Waiting. Also time per activity is clearly shown.

The Balance Sheet shows graphically each station’s occupancy rate and its work tasks, per product variant relative to the takt time. A specifik product mix is also possible to present.

The Machine Set-Up instruction shows along a timeline how the machine set-up will look graphically, as well as who will do what and when. Internal and external activities are separated and clearly displayed.

The Loss Report specifies where and how much loss time there is at each workstation. Even poor ergonomics are highlighted.
