    Help! I am trying to figure out how to load a heijunka box to optimize the level loading of our production line.
    We have several parts going through the same line, I am trying to understand an easy way to load the heijunka box everyday, taking into account what parts need to be produced, at what quantity, & within what sequence to facilitate a mininum number of change-overs.
    I know there is software out there to assist with this, but I don’t want another software platform I have to deal with.
    Any one have a suggestion?

    Look towards your Bottleneck operations for how you should load your Heijunka box. Capacity Constraints will gide you towards level loading of the rest of the line. Without knowing more about you operations or production methods, TAKT rates ect it is impossible to be more specific, but whenever I have had to level load in am mixed model environment it is always the bottle necks that determine the optimal scheduling sequences and parameters.
    Hope this helps

    Note :- If outcome of Over and Under Capacity is Positive then it is means the Process is Over Capacitiazed and it is negative it means it’s Under capacitized
