Abstract
This work presents a new variant for the Time and Space Balancing Problem whose objective is balancing the ergonomic risk of operators of mixed model assembly line. Specifically, the model is focused on minimizing the range between ergonomic risk values of workstations. In this way, not only the differences between levels of ergonomic risk of workstations are reduced, but it is also attempted to reduce the maximum ergonomic risk of the assembly line. The model is compared to another one that min...
