A frequently problem found in case of serial production is the balancing of flow lines. This paper shows how using modelling and simulation procedures can put in evidence the bottleneck in the manufacturing flow. These situations occur to the case where the corresponding times of the technological operations differ very much. Using the program TECNOMATIX PLANT SIMULATION can be highlighted those dysfunctions that may appear during of the manufacturing system operation. It is also possible to identify the solutions to allow equilibration of the lines of the manufacturing process. The program TECNOMATIX PLANT SIMULATION offers a variety of information useful for/in the decision makers in the management of the manufacturing process.
