Production is a key function in the supply chain. This chapter focused on the role of production in the supply chain and its evolution. Manufacturing processes have been influenced by changing business conditions. In this chapter, we discussed the three key forms of intrafirm production processes - craft production, mass production and lean production.
This saw the evolution of supply chain production. Supply chain production considers the entire supply chain to achieve flexibility and efficiency in the production process. Three widely-used supply chain production systems - dispersed production; build-to-order production and production postponement -have been discussed.
