In the paper we will suggest an approach based on modeling and simulation for the assignment of activities to the operators of a flexible assembly line. Thanks to the above approach, it will be possible to optimize the workload of each operator, in particular to reduce nonvalue and increase saturation. Through the adoption of a specific modeling logic, we can simulate lines with high flexibility of manufacturing and assembly, in various industrial sectors. Starting from the analysis of a real case and following an incremental approach, a simulation model has been realized, verified and validated, which allows to obtain useful information about: production mix; percentages of saturation; lead time and optimization of the assembly line.
