The difference between an assembly line process flow and a continuous process flow is that the assembly line the flow is discrete rather than continuous. 5. The choice of which process structure to select is generally a function of the volume requirements for the product. 7.

The assembly-line balancing procedure determines the precedence relationships of manufacturing tasks. 13. In assembly-line balancing the theoretical minimum number of workstations is found by a ratio of the sum of all task times divided by the cycle time. 15. For the purposes of assembly-line balancing, cycle time is found by dividing production time per day by the required units of output per day. 17. If the sum of the task times required to produce a product is 45 minutes and the cycle
