Mass Production

Advantages

  • It is usually 'automated' to the highest extent possible.
  • Fewer labour costs
  • Faster rate of production
  • Capital and energy are increased while total expenditure per unit of product is decreased
  • Faster rate of production

Disadvantages

  • Machinery is very expensive to buy, so production lines are very expensive to set up.
  • Workers are not very motivated, since their work is very repetitive.
  • Not very flexible, as a production line is difficult to adapt.
  • If one part of the line breaks, the whole production process will have to stop until it is repaired.

Evaluation

Suitable for everyday products and/or basic necessities and the cost for the products are relatively low.
