The development of an assembly line would not stop at a specific research even if that research contains very detailed sectors of one assembly line or starting from customer order to product delivery. Therefore continuous improvement needs to be vigorous for continuous productivity improvement and innovation. The optimization process of printed circuit board assembly line includes hard and soft optimization. The hard optimization includes hardware changes via design and the soft optimization is figured via simulation of the current assembly line and analysis. The aim of the research is to determine the bottlenecks find a solution and develop improvement method via changing the configuration of the setup on the assembly line until the feasible optimal configuration is definite. The software that will be used for this simulation is Arena software. The data of the research is collected from real assembly line. The best engineering assumption for the area is used for no permanent data that could be available such as the data that might be collected from the manual stations. In addition to the aim of the research is to get a better yield via improving the time of the PCB assembly process. Hence the outcome to all of these attempts of optimizing the assembly line of PCB for continuous improvement is to deliver good quality products reduce cost and minimize the time to delivery and meet the customer expectations.
