 Assembly Line Balancing Problem
The decision problem of optimally partitioning (balancing) the assembly work (tasks) among the stations with respect to some objective is known as the assembly line balancing problem (ALBP) 
Tries to achieve the best compromise between labor, facility andresource requirements to satisfy a given volume of production
NP hard problem -existing optimization procedures have a complexity of atleast 2
Usually a multi-objective problem
Reduces to the traditional bin-packing problem if task precedence constraintis removed
Common formulation
Given set of tasks, precedence graph of tasks and cycle time, solve fornumber of stations
Cycle time bounds:
Long -Mid term strategic problem in assembly line design
