Line balancing is a production strategy that can be used to optimize the workstations or assembly line throughout. It helps to reduce the production time, reduce labor and maximizing output at lowest cost. This article represents case study problem in a company to develop the existing layout based on takt time and also to improve the labor productivity and machine utilization. In this work time study has conducted in order to calculate task time of every operation in the existing plant layout. The objective of this study is to balance the production line and also to improve the performance of the existing layout. The data used for this research work is collected from the company. The outcome of the research shows 12.84% improvement in production line efficiency after line balancing. Hence this study recommends that the company should adopt the proposed layout and replacing the existing layout with a new one for getting higher productivity.
