Standard versus Custom Manufacture


A firm that produces items according to its own specifications performs standard manufacture. A firm that produces items to a customer’s specifications is doing custom manufacture. Standard manufacture is more common and includes almost all consumer products from breakfast cereals to cars. Examples of custom manufactured items are specialized machine tools, some vans and made-to-order clothing.
