Glossary Term: Feeder lines
Feeder lines are a special assembly line where pre-assembly tasks can be performed off the main production line. Performing pre-assembly off the main production line increases efficiency as fewer parts are needed in the main assembly line and there is greater availability of service-ready components in the main production area. The use of feeder lines improves quality and lessens the lead time of production.
