Productive Processes: understand how they work

Processos Produtivos Industriais: entenda como funcionam

In order to beat competitors and remain competitive, it is essential that the industry be attentive to its production processes.

From the implementation of a good strategy, it is possible to achieve, through them, excellent results in the optimization of time and increase in productivity.

If the process management was ignored, the company may suffer from a series of pains, such as:


1) High operating costs

2) Difficulty in growth

3) Quality commitment

4) Excess inventory and waste

5) Production of items with higher than expected value

6) Among others


For this reason, it is essential to know which production processes best fit your business model and to be aware of everything that happens in them. Understand!


Assembly line

Here, flexibility does not stand a chance.

Is a type of process that prioritizes orderly sequence, work is divided into specific tasks, and employees have almost no mobility to get deeper into activities.


 Project processes

If you are looking for customization and authenticity, here is the key!

In this model, producing in large quantities is not a focus.

Through a sequence of operations, the customer’s order is developed in detail and programmed to follow a single processes.



This type is very similar to the previous one since the production volume is also low and allows a high variety.

However, while in the design processes the resources used in production were specific to each product, here they are shared.

To better understand, just think about tailoring. To manufacture new parts, employees will share existing materials.


Batch processes

Although it is often confused with Jobbing, the model, as the name implies, is aimed at high volume and low variety production.

In this type of process, it is quite common to have continuous repetition in services and in the way of production.


Mass production processes

Similar to the batch for producing in high volume and with low variety, but with a marked difference: in mass production, the processes tend to be highly automated, and present an even greater volume than the previous one.


Continuous processes

24 hours a day of production: this is the main characteristic of continuous processes.

That is why, as Ritzman and Krajewski affirm, “they are the extreme of large volume production and standardized with mass production flows”.

To get a sense of their importance, we can mention as an example petrochemicals and paper mills, which operate continuously.
