There are many problems in assembly line. Some of the problems are assembly line reliability which relates to maintenance and unbalance workload. As a result, production line is not efficient and production plan is not fulfilled. Previous research on two-sided assembly line balancing problem has proprosed improvement method by considering index relationship between tasks. There are only two factors that is taken into account in this research, they are: distance factor of the implementation of the task (distance factor) and tools used to perform the task (tool factor). Therefore, this paper aims to develops conceptual model by considering additional factors that affecting Assembly Line Tasks Consistency (ATC). The additional factors that are considered are as follow: distance factor, tool factor, motion factor, layout factor, and skill factor. The purpose of this conceptual model is to increase productivity by minimizing number of workstations. Linear combination are used to find a combination solution of a relationship between task to complete a two-sided assembly line balancing problem. Improvement of proposed assembly line are measured according to Balance Delay (BD) and Line Efficiency (LE).
