This research paper will discuss the issue of different machining approach towards the productivity of the assembly line by using computer simulation. The data needed to generate the simulation has been collected at a metal fabricating company and entered into the ProModel simulation software. The different arrangement and combination of the machining approach in the assembly line which has been simulated will be evaluated to determine which one produces the improved productivity. The assembly line which produces more output in the shorter period of time with the alternate combination will be chosen as the better choice as the productivity has been improved. Different machining approach will result in different productivity which much will affect the profit of the corresponding company. From three approaches, the automatic option stands out as the least productivity time as a whole but dynamic effect towards the following process has taken place which might concern people of real practice since it fasten the process on the changed station but not the case on the latter.
