Intermittent production type, are all types of production which includes irregular start and stop time.

Production works based on several factors

  • Flexible production process
  • Made to order production- orders assembled per customers orders
  • Equipment aka machines used in the production
  • Different and amendable volume of production
  • Wide variety of products that are produced
  • Unbalanced production
  • Transportation between different warehouses/facilities

There are four main types of production:

  1. Job production
  2. Batch production
  3. Project production
  4. Continuous production
