Optimisations in production processes are routine in most engineering companies. The possibility of using simulation is crucial for the industry in the 21st century because it provides an opportunity to verify many variants in a very short time. The results obtained in this way can then contribute to faster decision-making in the field of manufacturing process optimisation. The paper includes a case study of the assembly line production process. The aim was to find bottlenecks in the product production process and capture and propose improvements not only in the technical but also in the production and ergonomic area. A "virtual twin" of the given process was also created in the Witness simulation program with the possibility to analyse and verify proposals for the work activities redistribution of assembly station operators.
