In this study, we examine the single-item lot sizing problem in surface mount technology (SMT) production lines which consist of a single automated pick-and-place surface mount equipment (SME). In our problem setting, processing and set up times depend on the component assignment to the component pockets on an SME. Blank body loading and component pack capacities are also taken into account. We propose an integrated mathematical model to the single-item lot sizing problem in SMT production lines where lot sizing and component assignment decisions are carried out together. In addition, we examine special cases for the component assignment problem and discuss how these cases influence the solution of the problem.
