1. Batch transformation diagram
a. Inputs → transformation process → outputs
b. Baseball assembly
i. Batch usually have higher volume that job shop processes, but unit
production is not as tightly sequence - units are not individually passed
through the transformation process
ii. Uniqueness of each item starts to decrease
c. Batch observations
i. Pace of work depends on both workers and machines
ii. Management can start and stop the process
iii. individual units are discrete and visible, but are passed in batches
iv. Workers apply materials and technology to the product
v. Limited product customization is possible
vi. technology/equipment is fairly specialized
vii. Flexibility is similar to job shop processes with efficiency more like the
production line
viii. Multiple units, relatively low volume, more standardization
ix. More defined but still disconnected transformation process
d. Batch impact on supply chain
i. Examples:
1. Sporting goods
2. Apparel
3. Some food products
ii. Cross between unique and commodity type product - made to stock or
made-to-order
iii. Highly capital and labor intensive - economies of scale important
iv. Material requirements known once plan is set
v. Order scheduling, tracking of materials, forecasting critical
vi. Changing demand can create shortages/excess WIP and finished goods
inventories, but limited by batch size
e. Production line observation
i. Pace of work depends on both workers and machines
ii. Flow is fairly constant
iii. Individual units are discrete and visible
iv. Flexibility is limited to those that meet the production line design
v. Few major products, higher volume, much more standardization
f. Production line impact on supply chain
i. Examples:
1. Commercial bakery
2. High volume consumer electronics
3. Motor vehicle production
4. Fast food restaurant
ii. Commodity type product - made to stock or made - to-order, standardized
items manufactured in anticipation of demand
