dc.description.abstractIn this paper, an assessment system of the ergonomic hazards existing in the workstations of an assembly line is provided. A mathematic model to solve the assembly line balancing problem is developed with the aim of minimizing the ergonomic risk that exists in an assembly line by taking into account the number of workstations and a set of temporal and spatial restrictions. This model has been applied, by means of a computational experiment, in a problem taken from a case study of Nissan’s engine plant in Barcelona. The experiment measures the impact that the increase in the number of workstations causes on the improvement of the ergonomic quality of such workplaces and on the reduction of the ergonomic risk.
