In this paper we propose to incorporate some working conditions to the assembly lines. For this, used a mathematical model to solve the assembly line balancing problem whose objective is minimizing the ergonomic risk, imposing the limitation of the cycle time, number of workstations and the maximum linear area for each station. A study is presented through a case study that corresponds to an assembly line from Nissan’s plant in Barcelona.
