What alternative methods of production might be better than assembly-line?
I am engaged in the production of cookies and I believe that the main advantage is the rather large popularity of cookies, which is due to the huge variety of taste, appearance, and also price. In turn, this makes it possible to reach people with low purchasing power. In addition, modern society tends to buy more natural products and I can offer this because I make biscuits in large batches using a biscuit making machine , in which there are not a lot of additives, dyes and various substitutes. This fact makes this product even more popular among buyers.
The advantages of conveyor production are the quick recoupment of the equipment cost, as well as the cost of maintaining and servicing the production line. The main disadvantage of such a business is a fairly high level of competition in this market segment. However, even small businesses can compete with well-known, more popular confectionery manufacturers. This is primarily due to the fact that new productions use the latest technologies and equipment, which allows to achieve cost savings while maintaining the proper quality of the product, as well as a creative approach to the production process, constantly expanding and updating the range. To the disadvantages, you can add quite large advertising costs that are needed to promote a product to the market.
