Write short note on batch or quantity production.Ripunjay Tiwari
Ans. Batch production is the manufacture of a number of identical articles either to meet a specific order or to satisfy continuous demand. When production of the batch is terminated, the plant and equipment are available for the production of similar or other products. As in job products, policies regarding
tooling fixtures and other aids are depending on the quantities involved. If the order is to be executed only once, there will be less justification for providing elaborate production aids than when the order is to be repeated. As in this type of production, two or more types of products are manufactured in lots (i.e., batches) at regular interval, therefore this is known as batch production.
