Abstract: 
In this paper we are to present a practical application of Axiomatic Design (AD) ‎methodology, as a roadmap to lean production, in redesigning a car body assembly ‎line. Axiomatic Design theory provides a framework to simplify the whole problem. ‎According to the AD principles, a hierarchical structure has been developed. The ‎developed structure originated in lean manufacturing principles and existing ‎conditions of an assembly line, revealed that elimination of all kinds of waste is a ‎prerequisite for other functional requirements. Several main sources of waste were ‎recognized in the assembly line and some practical solutions are suggested to alleviate ‎these problems. In the initial survey, it became obvious that high work-in-progress is ‎the major problem of this assembly line, which is the symptom of an unbalanced flow. ‎Two cells have more problems than others and require to be modified first: the door ‎cell and the underbody cell. Based on the hierarchy, these cells are redesigned. In ‎addition to interior space of the cells, two automatic material handling systems-‎overhead chain conveyor- are employed respectively to facilitate handling operation ‎of these cells. Main Line is another part of the assembly line, have to being modified ‎by adding spot welding robots. The proposed plan is justified both technically and ‎economically to the managers of the assembly line‏.‏
