Tackle imbalanced lines with proven manufacturing LBO
Gain instant production line capacity
Delay CapEx and ‘do more’ with existing lines
Permanent bump in productivity
Set a great baseline so performance doesn’t slip
Shifts baseline performance KPI
Poor production line balance is like wasting free production capacity.
An imbalanced manufacturing line limits the actual volume your site can produce, regardless of your performance initiatives or line capacity. Slow starts and restarts – or poor equipment set-ups – prevent your team from reaching peak production capacity.
Optimizing production line balance and setting speeds by V-Curve is the easiest way to meet your production targets without significant facility upgrades or capital investment.
Get the most out of the accumulation on your line.
Audit data, methodology and software, all in one
Not just production line balancing software, our team provides a guaranteed manufacturing line balance step-change. We’ll guide you through a data-informed audit, implement five levels of control and train your team to use LineView’s line balancing software - all for long-term results.
Line balance scores make benchmarking easy
Making production line balance easy is the key to lasting results. Easy-to-understand manufacturing line balance scores for every product type with built-in baseline comparisons are built-in within LineView’s line balancing software.Teams can benchmark live data vs. historical- so you’ll never lose your capacity gains.
Optional controls to automate restarts and recover speed
Optional manufacturing line balance control unlocks additional performance gains between 2-5%.This supervisory line control module sets optimal restart times on core machines (filler, labeler, packer)to accelerate recovery after downtime.
A proven manufacturing LBO™ methodology for instant 6-10% OEE performance gains
Manufacturing Line Balance Optimisation, built on our Perfect Flow Model, is a 5-step process to improve your V-Curve setup, maximise your build-back accumulation and control your line without manual interventions.
If you run a traditional V-Curve line with accumulation conveyors but still have a stop–start process requiring your team to intervene, our LBO methodology is a proven approach to an instant line balancing and optimization with 6-10% performance gain.
How Production Line Balancing Works:
Our in-house operational experts will audit your manufacturing line balance
A robust audit by our-house operational experts will outline a full set of recommendations within a practical manufacturing LBO action plan.The line optimization plan, based on current resources or low-investment opportunities, can be executed by your internal teams or with help from our team.

Set baseline line balance scores and monitoring via LineView
Real-time monitoring with insightful manufacturing line balance scores is the secret sauce of our LBO methodology. With benchmarking and accurate live data, your bump in productivity isn’t a short-term win but rather a permanent capacity increase that keeps on giving.
Automate manufacturing line balance control (optional)
An optional automated production line balance control module enables Quick Restart and Recovery Time to restart the critical machine as quickly as possible. Quick Restart Reduces your build-back time by 10-120 seconds per downtime event within each zone. Recovery Time optimizes recovery so dynamic accumulation can be ready for another stoppage without affecting the critical machine.
Optimal line balancing to meet production targets on every shift.
With a complete solution for line balance optimisation, teams won’t be left guessing about line speeds or manual interventions.
Armed with simple line balancing scores and automatic controls, your team can meet daily production targets without significant facility upgrades or CapEx.
