Business studies chocoholic's plc activity 2 Assessment exam question Job production is used when a firm manufactures individual unique products. Two examples of job production are building bridges and made-to-measure clothes. Businesses use specialisation to make their work production more efficient. It's called division of labour this is when a company divide their worker and each do their own specific job. This way a worker does the same task up to 100 times a day so become experts and it therefore increasing efficiency and this would improve the businesses productivity.

But I would advise them to introduce batch production. ...read more.
