In this paper, modification of simple assembly line balancing spreadsheet was done to accommodate the methodology for solving two-sided assembly line balancing problem. In the two sided assembly line balancing problem, tasks are divided into three main categories; depending on sides position either right side (R), left side (L) or can be positioned at any sides (E). In addition, random task selection is added to conventional priority rules to present the effect of multi-solutions on two-sided assembly line balancing. Tests conducted to evaluate the performance of the spreadsheet methodology has shown that the introduction of the random priority rule has generated better performance results for the two-sided assembly line balancing problem.
