Types of Dispatching

Decentralized dispatching:
means the issue of orders and instructions to the work force by the individual foreman to the works making under him. No central instructions are issued.

But no form of dispatching is followed in its strict sense. A mix of the two is generally followed by most of the industries. In this form orders are issued to the foremen form the central office and foremen are free to determine the sequence within their section.
