 for production line
From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  assembly line \assembly line\ n.
     A line of machinery, tools, and workers on which objects to
     be manufactured are moved from one post to the next, where
     different workers perform different steps in the
     manufacturing process; called also production line. The
     objects to be manufactured usually move on a form of conveyor
     belt, which does not necessarily move only in a straight
     line, but may continue around the factory area for some
     distance.
