Finally, as we have seen in this section, not all the key stages are used every time. You do not have to assemble a loaf of bread. Nor do the stages always follow in the same order. The various parts of a car are painted and/or electroplated (finished) after subassembly but before final assembly.

The characteristics of batch production can be summarized as: • Flexibility. A wide range of similar products can be produced with the • • • • • same plant. Batch sizes vary widely. Production is relatively slow as one set of operations are usually completed before the next are commenced. Work in progress has to be stored between operations. This ties up space and working capital. It also has to be transported from one group of machines to the next. General purpose machines are used. These have a lower productivity than the special purpose machines used in line and flow production.

29. To change the product, the computers are reprogrammed. The computer programs are kept on discs and are available for repetitive batches thus saving lead-time in setting up the cell.
