Competence-Based Performance Analysis of U-Shaped Assembly Lines
The paper presents a performance analysis of a u-shaped assembly line taking into account the competences of multi-skilled workers. This arrangement requires multi-skilled operators to serve on several different processes and machines. A multi-skilled worker can possess many skills at various levels. These competences translate into varying performances of individual operators and as a result on the performance of the whole line. In this paper we use a Hierarchical Competence Model to estimate the performance of a u-shaped assembly line knowing the required and possessed competences.
