What are the different production methods?

Updated: Jun 18, 2023

There are four (4) production methods

  1. Flow production

  2. Batch production

  3. Job production


Flow Production


Flow production involves a continuous flow of mass production of an identical product which are similar in size and design. This would enable economies of scale, but may also result in high defects with no quality detection from continuous production.


Batch Production


Batch production involves the production of a limited amount of identical product that varies slightly in terms of design and features. i.e different fruit drinks, tea flavours, women shoes design, shampoo or soap scents, and etc.


Job Production


Job production produces one unit at a time with every unit unique or significantly different from others. They usually have specific design and customization requirement.
