In today’s competitive manufacturing environment, companies are constantly looking for ways to improve. Because of this, many companies are striving to become “lean” by implementing lean manufacturing, which is a difficult process. Line balancing is part of the lean manufacturing. To aid in the implementation of line balancing manufacturing, simulation was used to reduce the trial-and-error period of line balancing manufacturing and find to optimum approach to implement the line balancing manufacturing principle. This thesis content is about the line balancing and the method to solving the problem. The scope of this thesis focuses on optimizing the production line of a SME company using Witness simulation software. The implementation of this thesis will be done at the small medium industry located at Shah Alam. There are three alternatives solutions in order to manage bottleneck and optimize the production line. The first alternative simulate about eliminate the workstation for reducing the idle time. Assembly 1, assemble 2 and meter potting is the three processes that reduce the workstation. Next the second alternative is about adding the new workstation at the critical processes. There are three processes that add with new workstation to improve the production line. Programming, FOS passivation and final assembly processes is the process that add with new workstation. This alternative is suitable for use to produce extra capacity in production. Lastly, the third alternative is about reducing the cycle time to optimize the product output. All of the alternative will analyze and compare with the current production line. The best alternative selected to improve the production line. To improve this thesis, further research about simulation needing for improve the simulation result and can give more than three alternative for optimize the production line.
