The efficiency of the assembly process is influenced by a wide range of different parameters. For their optimal setting, a thorough comprehensive analysis of the entire assembly process and identification of shortcomings in the form of bottlenecks or insufficient capacity utilization of assembly workplaces is necessary. As part of the presented paper, the use of the FMEA method in combination with dynamic simulation for analysis of the efficiency of its operation is presented on the example of a real assembly process. The obtained results showed the existence of a bottleneck in the supply area carried out by means of a single AGV set. The subsequent proposed solution, which consisted in the introduction of the use of another AGV set, brought an increase in the efficiency of individual assembly workplaces from the original values in the range of 75% to 85% to the level of 87% to 98%.
