This paper addresses the problem of sequencing for the mixed-model assembly lines in the car industry. In
the real car productive systems, the sequence is defined by the content and the extraction order of a subset of
units, taken from a buffer at the beginning of the assembly line, which is dynamically refilled. The problem
consists of defining the sequence of an assembly line in real time to optimize the flow of materials and the
requirements of resources on the line. Some results obtained with real data from the factory are shown, and
they demonstrate that the heuristic approach performs well in the real productive system where it has been
