Abstract
Several families of objective functions for the PRV problem (minimizing the variation in the rate at which different products are produced on an assembly line) are formalized, relationships between them are established and it is demonstrated that, in very general conditions, they can be optimized by solving an assignment problem or a polynomially bounded sequence of assignment problems.
