The literature available on integrating the various aspects of production lot-sizing, inspection, and rework under suitable classification scheme is reviewed in this paper. It is important that functional aspects of production activities are well integrated for producing low cost and defect free items. A strategic framework is presented for developing an efficient production-design system for modern manufacturing. In addition, future research directions on integrating various production functions are indicated for improving the performance of the system.
