Abstract: Mixed-model assembly line balancing problem (MMALBP) is an NP-hard problem which requires an effective algorithm for solution. In this study, an assessment of metaheuristic algorithms to optimize MMALBP is conducted using four popular metaheuristics for this problem, namely Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), Simulated Annealing (SA), Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) and Genetic Algorithm (GA). Three categories of test problem (small, medium, and large) were used ranging from 8 to 100 number of tasks. For computat…
