Home > Manufacturing Terms & Definitions > Single-Piece Flow


In contrast with Batch and queue, single piece flow is a situation where products proceed, 1 complete product at a time, through various operations in design, order-taking, and production, without interruptions, back-flows, or scrap. Mastery of single-piece flow ensures the highest quality and lowest cost.
