Two operations management techniques in solving a management problem in an engineering environment involving repetitive operations are described: line of balance and simulation modeling. Alternatives related to resource reallocation and automation are proposed to improve productivity levels. The study consists of data collection and analysis, problem modeling, generation and testing of alternatives, and recommendation of a service improvement program. The program is aimed towards reducing backlogs in operations, and developing a stable resource configuration for meeting expected workloads. The line of balance and simulation models were used for generating and evaluating practical means of enhancing the overall performance of the engineering office.
