Abstract

This paper discusses a two stage graph-algorithm, which was designed to solve line balancing problems including practice relevant constraints (GALBP), such as parallel work stations and tasks, cost synergies, processing alternatives, zoning restrictions, stochastic processing times or U-shaped assembly lines. Unlike former procedures, the presented approach can be easily modified to incorporate all of the named extensions. It is not only possible to select and solve single classes of constraints, but rather any combination of them with just slight modifications.
