  • Scale of Production
    • Mass Production
      • Making many amounts of the same products
      • Different Stages of production are broken down
        • very repetitive
      • expensive
      • Specialised
      • Recruitment is fairly easy
    • Continuous Production
      • It runs all the time, with not interruption
      • Expensive to start and stop the process
      • equipment is made to make a single product
      • design created efficiently
      • Cost per item =cheap
      • Example
        • Chocolate bar packaging
    • Just-in-time
      • This isn't a type of production.
        • It is a way a manufacturer chooses to outsource its materials
      • Saves storage area
        • Saves money
      • Less money is tied up with materials not being used.
      • Unsold products don't pile up.
      • If products are delayed it can effect the business, as it loses money
        • Also if materials don't arrive on time it can effect the business
    • One-Off Production
      • It can be very labor intensive
        • Time consuming
        • The worker have to be skilled as they have to create the product from scratch
        • Expensive
      • This is when only one product is made.
      • It can be said that each item is customized
      • Examples: Paintings
    • Batch Production
      • Labor  and machinery can be used
      • It is when you perform 1 process on a whole batch
      • Examples
        • Leaflets
        • Posters
        • Special addition products
      • The batches are made repeatedly
      • Making a set number of products
      • Time lost between the change of batches is called  Downtime
        • Downtime wastes money
      • Not as effiecnt as Mass production
    • Increased production and the effects
      • If type of production in changed, it impacts the efficiency
        • Because measures would have to change for increased   efficiency
      • Workers and materials would have to managed so it would suit the new production style
      • Efficiency is key, as it effects the amount of money used.
        • New equipment would have to be purchased for the new production style.
  • One-Off Production
    • It can be very labor intensive
      • Time consuming
      • The worker have to be skilled as they have to create the product from scratch
      • Expensive
    • This is when only one product is made.
