In this paper, we present an extension to the TSALBP problem (Time and Space constrained Assembly Line Balancing) with ergonomic risk restrictions and two mode1s to aggregate elemental tasks. We perform a study linked to Nissan to evaluate the impact that produces the ergonomic risk reduction on the number of workstations required by the line in the particular case of TSALBP-1.

Keywords: Automobile Industry, Ergonomics, Task-Blocks, Assembly Line Balancing.
