Assembly lines are productive systems, which are very efficient for  homogeneous products. In the automotive industry, an assembly line is  used in the production of several vehicle variants, including numerous  configurations, options, and add-ins. As a result, assembly lines must  be at the same time specialized to provide high efficiency, but also  flexible to allow the mass customization of the vehicles. In this book,  the planning of assembly lines for uncertain demand is tackled and  optimization algorithms are offered for the balancing of such lines.  Building an assembly line is a commitment of several months or even  years, it is understandable that the demand will fluctuate during the  lifetime of an assembly line. New products are developed, others are  removed from the market, and the decision of the final customer plays a  role on the immediate demand. Therefore, the variation and uncertainty  of the demand must be accounted for in an assembly line. In this book,  methods dealing with random demand or random production sequence are  presented, so that the practitioners can plan more robust and efficient  production systems.
