EVALUATION OF MULTI CRITERIA ASSEMBLY LINE BALANCING BY MCDM APPROACHES: A CONCEPTUAL REVIEW
Authors: Pallavi Sharma, G. Thakar, R.C. Gupta
Abstract: This research paper gives an up-to-date review and discusses the development of the multi criteria assembly line balancing (ALB) and also gives a detailed list of different criteria for the purpose of comparing different assembly line balancing techniques. This paper is structured in six ections. Section one is introduction which gives the details of basic contributions of different researchers. Section two gives basic problem of assembly line balancing and its detailed classifications. In Section three objectives (criteria's) are shown in tabulated manner with reference as a result of extensive literature survey. Section four portrays assembly line balancing techniques for the solution of ALB Problems. Section five gives the information about the gaps in the literature for prioritizing different assembly line balancing techniques. Finally Section six, concludes the research work and gives information about possible future implications.
Keywords: Multiple Objective Criteria, Assembly Line Balancing Techniques, MCDM Approaches
