Abstract

Context: Improving manufacturing and attaining manufacturing excellence to gain competitive advantage has attracted a lot of attention in the last few years. Vehicle Assembly Line balancing being the most complex Assembly line, has been active area of research over years and has attracted many researchers.

Objective: This paper systematically identifies and unfolds the important parameters by systematic review. Goal of this Review is to develop a novel classification of literature on Vehicle Assembly Line Optimization supported   by recent publications since 2009.

Methodology: Total of 151 papers were identified, out of which 124 referred journal articles are reviewed here. Data is sourced from 40 publications, majority of which includes Elsevier, IEEE, and Springer.

Results: Analysis of research on Assembly Line Balancing and optimization within many different industrial scenarios has been done her. This paper contributes to existing domain by classifying and comparing the means for input data, constraints and methodology used. It has been classified into five heads.

Conclusion: The literature has been reviewed with an objective to identify the gap between theory and practice and suggest future research directions in the area of Vehicle Assembly Line Optimization. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first systematic detailed review in this area.

Keywords:
Simulation, optimization, lean, mathematical modeling, search algorithm
