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.

strikes. A problem with one group of workers may halt production in the whole business therefore no product will be made so none can be sold. Therefore no profits can be made.

So in conclusion I don't think chocoholics should introduce labour specialisation as it would improve productivity but in the case of chocoholics it could result in poor quality goods and they could produce to many products and in chocolates do have a sell by date so making a large quantity could lead to a lot of waste so I wouldn't advise chocoholics to begin using division of labour. But I would advise them to introduce batch production. ...read more.
