Workstation stability is one of the key requirements of any production industry. It gives smooth workflow in the shop and it is beneficial for the operators. In this article a detailed case study of an assembly process has been carried out for workload balancing of operators. The methodology used includes time study, process mapping, shifting of tasks and changing operation sequences. There are some important results obtained from which certain conclusions have been drawn about workstation stability. The results of the study can be further validated using simulation methods and can be implemented in the company.
