These standards are verifiable and do not suffer the subjectivity of operate rating. This is the reason that most labor unions worldwide require standards to be developed using these types of engineering systems.
EASEworks line balancing optimizes your production and packaging lines.
Labor standards engineered in EASE can be created quicker, and maintained easier than other technologies. In addition, EASE allows for what if’s, without having to view an alternate method.

In order to maximize throughput, meet the TAKT time and minimize cost, effective line balancing is essential in any environment where the work progresses down an assembly or build line.
An effective line balance is needed for continuous flow manufacturing’s goal of optionally balanced production lines with little waste, the lowest possible cost, and on-time, defect-free production.
EASEworks uses the work standards from the work standards module to create an initial line balance.
EASEworks graphically displays the time the part or product spends at each workstation on the line and provides the capability to dynamically rebalance the line to achieve the smoothest, most efficient result. Read more about Line Balancing »
