Machine Balance Chart Template
For the purpose of machine balancing, the term "machine" means...
Any type equipment that runs automatically without operator intervention
after the operator has perhaps loaded or started it.
Any equipment that requires an operator to run it is NOT included within machine balancing,
because it is the operator, not the machine, that will be the focus of attention for lean process analysis
for those types of operator-run machines.
