Mixed Mode Manufacturing

Mixed Mode Manufacturing describes a manufacturing facility which combines more than one type of manufacturing. The types can be discrete and process, but the term also applies to multiple types within discrete (for example, engineer to order and continuous flow); and to multiple types within a process environment (continuous and batch).

Production scheduling, product traceability, and labelling may need specialist software in a mixed mode manufacturing environment.
