With the continuous development of science and technology and the emergence of new methods, technologies and ideas, the manufacturing industry has become a pillar industry to promote economic development and an important part of enhancing national economic competitiveness under the impact of the global economic crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic. Production line balance directly affects the cost control and production efficiency in manufacturing industry. Therefore, it is necessary to summarize and sort out the researches related to production line balance in the past 20 years, so as to find new hot spots for research on production line balance and provide theoretical basis for new development of research on production line balance. Using CNKI database as data retrieval source and Citespace literature measurement tool, this paper conducted knowledge graph visualization analysis on literatures related to production line balance from 2000 to 2022, aiming at sorting out the knowledge structure, development history and research hotspots in the field of production line balance, and indicating the future development direction.
