EN Production leveling (jap. Heijunka) is an effective method of balancing production and controlling stocks. It also provides an appropriate level of flexibility. This article presented an analysis of the literature on production leveling. In particular, the focus was on definitions, key goals, and methods for implementing leveled production. Also presented is a fragment of research on developing a method for planning the flow of finished products from the production process. The focus was on determining such a variant of the production batch size and production frequency for the selected model of the production process, which, which the given input parameters will get the best results in terms of the degree of order processing and machine load. To achieve the assumed goal, three variants of the production plan were proposed, a computer simulation was created in FlexSim, and the results of the simulation were analyzed.
