Batch production entails products being manufactured in groups. Products can go through several production stages. It is required that the entire batch be completed before moving to the next stage. Advantages of batch production include lower capital, supply stabilization, and minimizing of spoilage or obsolescence of slow moving products. Drawbacks of batch production involve process inefficiencies as equipment is stopped, re-configured, and its output tested before the next batch is produced. The value proposition for batch processes must be defined by its advantages and disadvantages.
