Incorporating Ergonomics Factors into the TSALBP
Mixed-product assembly lines have ergonomic risks that can affect the worker productivity and lines. This work proposes to incorporate ergonomic factors to the TSALBP (Time and Space constrained Assembly Line Balancing Problem). Therefore, we present several elements for new models to assign the tasks to a workstation considering technological, management and ergonomic factors.
