line production



Repetitive manufacturing process in which each product passes through the same sequence of operations, and the machines and other equipment are laid-out in the order they are used. Line production is dedicated to the needs of a single or small group of products and (unlike in batch production) the process does not have to be stopped and restarted for each new product.
