Waldemar Grzechca was born in Gliwice in Poland. He graduated at the Silesian University of Technology in 1989 and at the same time he started working at the Department of Automation Control, Electronics and Computer Science. His research was focused on accuracy of robot trajectories and robot applications in manufacturing companies. Next, he has moved his research and interest to manufacturing systems. He studied different structures of machines (sequencing and scheduling in single machine and parallel machines configurations, job shop system, flow shop system, etc.). He is especially interested in assembly lines balancing problem. He investigates different types of lines and focuses on estimation of final results of balance of single and two-sided lines. He is author of more than 60 conference and journal papers which deal with assembly lines problems.

An assembly line is a manufacturing process in which parts are added to a product in a sequential manner using optimally planned logistics to create a finished product in the fastest possible way. It is a flow-oriented production system where the productive units performing the operations, referred to as stations, are aligned in a serial manner. The present edited book is a collection of 12 chapters written by experts and well-known professionals of the field. The volume is organized in three parts according to the last research works in assembly line subject. The first part of the book is devoted to the assembly line balancing problem. It includes chapters dealing with different problems of ALBP. In the second part of the book some optimization problems in assembly line structure are considered. In many situations there are several contradictory goals that have to be satisfied simultaneously. The third part of the book deals with testing problems in assembly line. This section gives an overview on new trends, techniques and methodologies for testing the quality of a product at the end of the assembling line.
