Ø Production: Production is the process of converting raw materials into finished goods or product. Production consists of using resources in order to obtain goods and services. Resources are combined in such away that utilities are created.

Ø Production Planning: production planning is the function of management concerned with planning, directing and controlling the methods to be used to make product and the way in which the production facilities, buildings, machines, equipment etc should be laid out in the space available production.

Ø Productivity: in its broadest sense is generally viewed as a more intensive use of conversion resources such as labour and machine and if measure on a factual basis, it should indicates reliable performance and efficiency. Productivity can also be defined as the measurement of success or achievement of individual firm in relating to increase output, according to international encyclopedia of social science (vol.9) productivity is defined as the empirical output, input ration that is widely used in economic, history, economic analysis and economic policies.
