Abstract


Recently, an imbalance workstation in the assembly line is one of the critical problem that many
companies face. Many researches have done to solve this problem with the various designs of assembly
line balancing. This research presents the comparison between straight line balancing and u-shaped line
balancing. Both straight line balancing and u-shaped line balancing have the same goal; minimizing the
workstations. The result of this research shows that u-shaped line balancing gives a better solution than
the straight line balancing in term of number of workstation. Straight line balancing is using Rank
Positional Weight (RPW) whereas u-shaped line balancing is using Critical Task Method (CTM).
Significantly, u-shaped line balancing is more efficient than straight line balancing.
Keywords : assembly line balancing, straight line balancing, u-shaped line balancing, Rank Positional
Weight, Critical Task Method
