Job production

Job Production is the process by which a one-off product is created to the specifications of an individual customer. Most of this is undertaken by smaller firms which are able to satisfy the niche markets not filled by larger businesses. This is usually used in combination with batch production.

An example of job production is making wedding cakes. Each cake will be produced just for that customer and will have specific details, although the base of the cake may be produced via batch production. Batch production and mass production, also known as flow production, are common alternatives to job production. In the case of building construction, elements produced by mass production are assembled in batch processes for implementation into the final specific job.
