Proposes a classification of different production categories and their respective productive systems and defines various classes of plants which carry out repetitive manufacturing. Also examines the applicative possibilities of repetitive production in regard to production volumes required and grades of flexibility necessary. Among the intermittent production systems described are those which present strong analogies with repetitive manufacturing systems; in particular that of the Zanussi‐Electrolux plant in Susegana, Italy. Finally, describes the fundamental elements which differentiate repetitive production from intermittent production.

Abstract

Proposes a classification of different production categories and their respective productive systems and defines various classes of plants which carry out repetitive manufacturing. Also examines the applicative possibilities of repetitive production in regard to production volumes required and grades of flexibility necessary. Among the intermittent production systems described are those which present strong analogies with repetitive manufacturing systems; in particular that of the Zanussi‐Electrolux plant in Susegana, Italy. Finally, describes the fundamental elements which differentiate repetitive production from intermittent production.
