Theapplication of fuzzy logic in balancing a single model tricycle assembly lineis presented in this study. MATLAB simulation software was used in the analysisof the primary and secondary data obtained from the assembly line under study.Results obtained from the study show that the efficiency of the line increasedfrom 88.1% to 92.4%. The total idle time was also reduced by 56.5%. Thisindicates an improvement in the efficiency of the line, reduction ofbottleneck, and even distribution of tasks along the line for the company understudy.
