Modular component placement machines of gantry-type are popular in PCB assembly manufacturing due to their great flexibility to the needs of different production plans. A two-step optimization method for the machine reconfiguration and workload balancing in the case of multiple PCB types is given in the present study. The proposed algorithm is iterative and applies integer programming for the workload balancing along with an evolutionary algorithm which performs the machine configuration.
