Mass production

Consolidated TB 32 production line - Mass production

Mass production is the production of large amounts of standardized products, including and especially on assembly lines. With job production and batch production it is one of the three main production methods. The concepts of mass production are applied to various kinds of products, from fluids and particulates handled in bulk to discrete solid parts (such as fasteners) to assemblies of such parts. Mass production is a diverse field, but it can generally be contrasted with craft production.
