Abstract—Manufacturing footwear is the number one source of income in Marikina City, Philippines. But, it is now facing a great challenge due to globalization. Imported shoes from China continue to threaten the profitability of Philippine made shoes. For the shoe makers of Marikina, being productive by means improving the processes, cost reduction of raw materials, and increasing efficiency are some of the best options since these do not require additional worker and machinery. In this study, the researchers use TMS and line balancing technique to increase efficiency of production line.
