The matrix consists of two dimensionsProduct Structure/Product Life CycleProcess Structure/Process Life CycleThe process structure/process life cycle describes the process choice in the form of jobshop, batch, assembly line, and continuous flow characterized by jumbled flow,disconnected line flow, connected line flow and continuous flow. The product structure onthe other hand describes the four stages of a product life cycle from low volume to highvolume along with low to high standardization.The production process used to manufacture a product moves from a highly flexible, highcost process to a standardized, automated and cost-effective process.Product DesignFor the design of a product there are different types of design processes as given belowJob ShopBatch productionAssembly LineContinuous FlowTo understand the crucial differences between the approaches we will use gear as theproduct in focus.Job ShopIn a job shop, the outputs differ significantly in form, structure, materials and processingrequirements.
