Chapter 7: Production

Definition:

Production is the process of turning resources into goods or services.

slide2

Production

Types of goods

Capital (producer) goods

= goods produced for helping production.

Consumer goods

= goods produced for direct consumption

slide3

Production

Three types / stages of production

Primary production

Secondary production

Tertiary production

slide4

Primary Production

Primary production refers to all productive activities that directly utilise natural resources in production.

Examples: farming, fishing and mining

slide5

SecondaryProduction

Secondary production is the process of turning raw materials into semi-finished or finished products.

Examples: paper-making, garment-making and production of MP3

slide6

Tertiary Production

Tertiary production refers to the provision of different kinds of services.

Examples: teaching services, transport services and medical services

slide7

Interdependence of the Three Types of Production

Consumer goods and producer goods

Secondary Production

Food and raw materials

Consumer goods and producer goods

Primary Production

Services

Food

Tertiary Production

Services

slide8

Specialisation (division of labour)

Definition:

Division of labour means a worker concentrates on producing (specialises in doing) a good, or part of a good.

slide9

Classification of division of labour

Three types ofdivision of labour:

  • Simple division of labour
  • Complex division of labour
  • Regional division of labour
slide10

Classification of division of labour

Simple division of labour:

When a worker specialises in producing aparticular product or service.

- Usually found in primitive societies

slide11

Classification of division of labour

Complex division of labour:

When each worker specialises in a

particular production stage of a

good or service.

- Found in modern societies

slide12

Classification of division of labour

Regional division of labour:

When a region, district or a

country specialises in

producing a good or service.

e.g.

slide13

Advantages of division of labour

1. Raising labour productivity

2. Saving resources from the production of capital goods

3. Improving the standard of living

slide14

Classification of division of labour

1. Raising labour productivity

Measurement of productivity:

quantity of output produced per unit of

labour over a period of time

e.g. Labour A: 3 toys per labour per hour

Labour B: 5 toys per labour per hour

Which labour is more productive?

slide15

Classification of division of labour

1. Raising labour productivity

Labour productivity is increased if:

a. more output / labour or

same output is produced with

less labour

slide16

Classification of division of labour

1. Raising labour productivity

Reasons:

a. Choosing the most suitable person

for a job

b. Practice makes perfect

c. Saving time in training

slide17

Classification of division of labour

1. Raising labour productivity

d. Saving time in moving around

operations

e. Making full use of capital goods

f. Mechanisation

Any difference between e. and f.?

slide18

Classification of division of labour

2. Saving resources from producing capital goods

Fewer tools and equipment are

Required save resources

slide19

Classification of division of labour

3. Raising the living standard

Division of labour  larger output

Exchange  broaden consumption

variety

∴ higher living standard

slide20

Defects / disadvantages of division of labour (P.11)

1. Work becomes dull and monotonous

 lower labour productivity

2. Greater degree of interdependence

Disruption in one stage badly affects

other stages.

slide21

Defects / disadvantages of division of labour (P.11)

3. Greater risk of unemployment

- when the demand for their skill drops

4. Decline in the quality of craftsmanship

- standardized products versus

hand-made products

slide22

Limitations of division of labour (P.13)

a. Size of the market

- Mass production requires

huge (large) market

b. Nature of the product

- Work that requires individuality is

not suitable for division of labour
