Running Head: ASSEMBLY LINE 2
An assembly line refers to a suitable preparation of equipment, human resource, and
machines in different stages of production. Each person on the assembly line, will perform their
responsibilities and pass the products onto the next station to continue the process until the
product is finish (Assembly line definition and meaning). Over the past decades, people has
embraced sweets (cakes, cookies, etc.) in surprising ways. Many people have become passionate
about different types of cakes, one in particular is the cupcake. Cupcakes are a
small cake designed to serve one person, which may be baked in a small thin paper or aluminum
cup. As with larger cakes, icing and other cake decorations such as fruit and candy may be
applied (Cupcake, 2018).
In the first diagram below displays how balancing the assembly line was determined.
Finding the cycle time determines the minimum working stations needed to produce the product.
Cycle time is determining by the time available during a working day, divided by the number of
products produced in the working hours. Finding the minimum working stations is found by
taking the total time to complete the task from start to finish, divided by the cycle time (Heizer,
Render & Munson 2016).
The table below describes each task that each working station will be responsible for to
complete the product.
BALANCEING THE ASSEMBLY LINE
CYCLE TIME 480 MINUTES / 96 CUPCAKES= 5 minutes per cupcake
MINIMUM # OF WORKSTATIONS 60 MINUTES TOTAL TAKE TIME/ 5 MINUTES CYCLE TIME = 12 STARIONS.
