Abstract: The life cycle of production system depicts the progress of production system from the inception to the termination of system. This paper explores the different stages of production system life cycle with the view to introspect the decisions made in each stage along with their key consideration. Besides this, quality enabled factors have been identified in each stage of the production system life cycle, which will help in making the accurate decision in different stages of the production system life cycle. In each sub-system of production system, identification of major activities/sub-activities along with role of concerned department would help to analyse and manage the stages of production system in a better way.

 

Keywords: production systems; production life cycle; production stages; production activities; quality; production processes.
