A problem of design of a flow line composed of stationary machines for sequential batch machining is considered. A MIP model for synthesis of manufacturing process structure is proposed. The model takes into account main technological and structural constraints with the criterion of the minimal line equipment cost. Results of solving a real industrial example are also presented.
