Typical of order-based production is the frequent sw itching from one product to another. Each product is manufactured in individually defined lots. Costs are calculated per order. In repetitive
m anufacturing, the same product is produced on a certain production line over a longer period of time. In production, a total quantity is produced according to a certain production rate over a certain
period of time. Costs are collected periodically at a product cost collector.

In order-based production, you usually have a changing sequence of w ork centers w here the products are processed. The order of w ork centers is determined in routings, w hich can often be
very complex. Semi-finished products are frequently placed in interim storage prior to further processing. Repetitive m anufacturing usually involves a relatively constant flow through production
lines. The routings of the individual products are very similar.

With production orders, component materials are staged w ith specific reference to the individual production orders. Confirmations for the various steps and orders document the w ork progress and

can be used for fine control. In repetitive m anufacturing, components are often staged at the production lines w ithout reference to a particular order. The confirmations (backflushes) are usually
executed periodically w ith no reference to an order (for example, all the quantities produced in one shift).
