A quantity of a product processed at the same time and under the same conditions, each item being identifiable as identical for classification purposes.  Batch production may involve setup processes for each batch and downtime in between the production of successive batches.  The alternative is continuous production, in which there is no down time and the same output is produced continuously without interruption.  See also Lot Size.
