Abstract: Moving assembly lines are the stepping stone for mass production of automobiles. Here, every second counts, which necessitates planners to meticulously optimize them. A crucial factor is each worker’s nonproductive walking time between the moving workpiece and line-side material containers for picking up required material. Minimizing the walking time is difficult because the workpiece moves steadily. Helmut A. Sedding devises algorithms to optimize the sequence of work operations, and the placement of material containers. Thereby, he introduces a novel category of time-dependent scheduling problems, and lays the basis for the algorithmic optimization of time-dependent paths at the moving assembly line.
