This paper describes an algorithm developed as a decision support system for SMT line operators and its purpose is to suggest changes in an existing feeder setup in order to improve the production performance. The proposed algorithm based on a relaxed model of the problem uses constraint programming approach and its performance is tested on production trial of one PCB type assembly.
