Batch and Queue


What is Batch and Queue?

Batch and Queue refers to traditional manufacturing methods where product is manufactured in large lots (batch), then stored (queue) as Work in Process (WIP) before moving to its next step in the manufacturing order. In opposition to Lean single-piece flow, or Just in Time methods, batch and queue is common in environments that have extensive setup or change-over times, long distances between processes, or outdated processes that have not been analyzed for optimum efficiency.
