Types Of Production in Business

The Three Types Of Production Are;

  • Primary Production
  • Secondary Production
  • Tertiary Production
  1. Primary Production – is the extraction of basic materials provided by nature, either above or below the earth surface. the extractive industries are: Farming , Fishing and Mining. without these, production would not take place. Agriculture is an important primary production in the Caribbean.
  2. Secondary Production – These industries take raw materials obtained by the extracted industries and change them into products such as  fishing goods , office supplies etc.
  3. Tertiary Production – These finished products must be transported, stored insured adverted and sold by traders. this is what makes up the Tertiary Production.

    • there is none that can distinctly qualify as servicing equipment but if i had to choose id say secondary, seeing that you are using materials that are changed into products that are ultimately used.
