of our objectives at Optimal Design is to build software that our
customers can master easily. They always have to keep the control
of the system and impose the constraints and/or solutions they want
the reason why, instead of only developing a pure automatic line
balancing tool, we have linked it with an interactive tool that
allows you to design solutions yourself, or to modify solutions
obtained with the automatic balancing tool. Your are thus always
master of the design of your solution.
interactive line balancing is based upon a simple drag-and-drop
concept with on-line control of the validity of the moves of operations
from station to station. Once the constraints have been introduced,
moving an operation from one station to another becomes extremely
fast and simple, thanks to the immediate visual feedback on each
modification. The powerful undo feature makes numerous “what-if”
trials a snap.
