The following paper face with an approach to analyse a multi model manual assembly line, and the following heuristic algorithm to optimize the scheduling of tasks to the available stations, respecting of a set of restrictions, as task/station obligation, and aiming to optimize a multi objective function, based on time, balancing utilization rates, and line balancing costs elements. This problem can be considered as belonging to the wide area of GALB Problems. Some strategy about resource scheduling opportunities has been considered. The original referable configuration of the considered system is an assembly line with six stations, and with six operators. In the present step, the solution we experimented, shows a redundant (doubled) number of stations, to be a more flexible solution compared to previous solutions, with a layout too much specific and referred to the particular tasks and constrains profile, based on real data. © 2013 DIME UNIVERSITÀ DI GENOVA.
