Manufacturing Operations | Operations Management | BBA Notes
Manufacturing operations produce a tangible output (ie; which can be physically seen) from the conversion process. The output from the manufacturing operations can be consumed over a longer period of time. Manufacturing Operations are generally based on capital intensive techniques as they use more capital (ie; more use of machines and equipment) and less labor. In manufacturing operations, there is no need to contact customers frequently and no need for customer participation.
In order to measure the performance of the manufacturing operations, sophisticated methods are used. Manufacturing operations cover a large area as they produce goods for the local level, national level, or international level. Manufacturing operations which include the production of goods and services are generally technology-based.
