We present a new mechanism to introduce diversity to a multiobjective algorithm based on Ant Colony Optimization to solve a more realistic extension of a classical industrial problem: Time and Space Assembly Line Balancing. Promising results are shown after applying the designed Multiobjective Ant Colony Optimization algorithm to ten real-like problem instances.
