Let’s explain the concept of production using the analogy below:
There is something you probably would like. It could be a phone, car, console game, movie or something else. All of these things would have underwent a series of transformation processes before you could enjoy them. To this end, the goal of production is to indeed satisfy your demand for these transformed things.
According to Parkinson and Bates,
Production is defined as an organized activity of transforming resources into finished products in the form of goods and services.
From the above definition, the objective of production is therefore to satisfy the demand for goods and services. The transformed resources of production could be a car, phone or something else.
Note: When a service is rendered, such rendered service is also considered as production because it satisfies the needs or wants of the recipient or consumer.
Therefore, people who provide services like hair dressers, security men and public bus drivers are considered productive; and whatever service had been rendered can appropriately be referred to as production.
It is important to state that consumers will always pay for the end product of production (which are goods and services).
Once again, the main purpose of production is to satisfy human needs and wants.
The point is: "anything made or created that isn't wanted nor needed is not considered as production".
From what had been written above, we can further defined production thus:
Production is any activity carried out to satisfy the needs and wants of humans; who would make payments or a form of exchange in return.
An exchange is always involved in production; and such exchange will involve a form of monetary exchange with goods or rendered services.
Note: When a person renders a service for free or satisfies human needs/wants for free, such is not considered as production.
In conclusion, production is always an economic activity. This means that it involves money earning and money spending.
