Batch-level activities occur for each batch produced or, in this case, inspected.
Three of the pools contained batch-level activities, while the activities of the others occurred at the facility level.
Moving units around the plant (e.g., by loading pallets onto a lift truck) results in batch-level activities and costs.
A major portion of batch-level activities undertaken to service a customer relate to the number of delivery batches into which the customer divides an order.
This study statistically tests the association of changes in batch-level activities with deviations from a theoretically optimal production schedule using data gathered at two manufacturing firms in two different industries.
This article focuses on batch-level activities to understand associated manufacturing complexities and costs.
Two forms of research methodology are utilized to investigate independence of batch-level activities. Consistent with McGrath et al., a multi-method approach attempts to "gain substantive convergence by methods that compensate for one another's vulnerabilities" (1982: 80).
As with the paperboard analysis, the data suggest batch-level activities are not consistent across multiple times and grades.
This study seeks to understand additional influences that may impact activities surrounding certain batch-level activities occurring in continuous-process manufacturing companies.
