In a two sided assembly line, different assembly tasks are carried out on the same product in parallel to
both left and right sides of the line . A metaheuristic approach is proposed to solve two sided assembly
line balancing problem (TSALB) of type II in this study. Weighted Superposition Attraction (WSA)
[2,3], which is based on two basic mechanisms, ‘superposition’ and ‘attracted movement of agents’ is
adopted to solve TSALB with the objective of cycle time minimization for a given number of stations.
Extensive computational study is carried out and the results are compared with the results of several
algorithms from the literature.
