Batch Production System

  1. 1. BATCH PRODUCTION SYSTEM All the products manufactured under a batch are similar in terms of type, cost, efforts, consumption of materials or specifications. Batch production is the manufacture of a number of identical articles either to meet a specific order or to meet a continuous demand. Batch can be manufactured either- only once or repeatedly at irregular time intervals as and when demand arise or repeatedly at regular time intervals to satisfy a continuous demand The following are the important characteristics of batch type production system:
  2. 2. As final product is somewhat standard and manufactured in batches, economy of scale can be availed to some extent. Machines are grouped on functional basis similar to the job shop manufacturing. Semi automatic, special purpose automatic machines are generally used to take advantage of the similarity among the products. Labor should be skilled enough to work upon different product batches. In process inventory is usually high owing to the type of layout and material handling policies adopted. Semi automatic material handling systems are most appropriate in conjunction with the semi automatic machines. Normally production planning and control is difficult due to the odd size and non repetitive nature of order.
  3. 3.  ADVANTAGES  cost of product design per unit is low  Economies of production  Flow of materials can be continuous  Automation and mechanization  DISADVANTAGES X Varying customer demands X Not appropriate for pull system
  4. 4. Batch production flows In batch production flows, the production schedule is decided according to specific orders or are based on the demand forecasts. Here, the production of items takes place in lots or batches. A product is divided into different jobs. All jobs of one batch of production must be completed before starting the next batch of production. Examples of batch production flows include, manufacturing of drugs and pharmaceuticals, medium and heavy machineries, etc.
