Made-to-order production means creating a product only when there is a demand for it. This can significantly reduce the amount of waste produced by manufacturing processes. In contrast, mass production often creates a large number of items that may not sell, which can
lead to excess inventory and potential waste.
Made-to-order systems use materials and resources more efficiently as items are
only made when needed. This helps conserve raw materials and reduce the energy consumption associated with production.
Overproduction is one of the most significant contributors to environmental degradation in the manufacturing sector. Made-to-order production mitigates the
risks of overproduction, as the number of products made matches the number of
Less storage required
The made-to-order model requires less
warehouse space, reducing the resources needed for storage, including energy for lighting, heating, and cooling.
Decreased transportation needs
When goods are made to order, there is less need for large-scale shipping and distribution to various retail locations, which decreases fuel usage and emissions associated with
Product life cycle
Made-to-order often means higher quality, as each item gets more attention in the production process. Higher quality items tend to have longer lifespans, reducing the need for replacement and thereby reducing resource usage and waste over time.
Made-to-order businesses can more easily control and adapt their supply chains, making it easier for them to source sustainable, ethically produced materials.
While made-to-order production has its advantages, it's important to note that it's not a silver bullet for all environmental issues
associated with manufacturing. It can have its drawbacks, such as potentially longer delivery times.
