However, in Malaysia quite often transportation companies especially the bus services facing some problems in inefficiency of final assembly line. This study therefore is carried out to enhance the efficiency of a bus seat assembly line in Malaysia. In this study, the actual final assembly line has been analyses using direct time study and then tested by different assembly line systems. The data collected from actual final assembly line include; operating time, processes, and workstation layout. The best assembly line system will be proposed after tested its efficiency rate. The efficiency comparison of actual assembly line and the proposed assembly line system are also highlighted.
