Although genetic algorithm (GA) has been widely used to address assembly line balancing problems (ALBP), not much attention has been given to the population initialization procedure. In this paper, a comparison is made between a randomly generated initial population and a heuristics-treated initial population. A heuristics-treated population is a mix of randomly and heuristics generated individuals in the initial population. Both populations are tested with a proposed GA using established test problems from literature. The GA, using a fitness function based on realized cycle time is capable of generating good solutions.
