Difference between s parallel processing and sequential processing: SEQUENTIAL PROCESSING: • In this process, units will pass through before one process they can be worked as in the sequence. • In this process firm, units are passing a series of production departments. In each department, materials, labour and overhead may be needed. • Upon completion of a particular process, the partially completed goods are transferred to the next department. • After passing through the final department ,the goods are completed and transferred to the warehouse. PARALLEL PROCESSING: • In this type of processing two or more sequential processing's are required to produce a single good. • Consider, for example, the manufacture of hard disk drives for personal computers. • In one series of processes, write heads and cartridge disk drives are produced, assembled, and tested. • In a second series of processes, printed circuit boards are produced and tested. • These two major subcomponents then come together for assembly in the final process.
