Hence the creation of separate product groups in many large manufacturing companies, and the use of functional grouping as a subsidiary rather than as the main form of departmentalization. 'Function' is a very general label and does not describe what particular activities will be included, nor the level at which different activities are grouped.
Canteens lend themselves to a variety of different types of customer grouping: • one canteen for everyone; • several canteens, open to all, but providing different standards at different prices- grouping by service; • grouping by different types of customers, either by type of work clean or dirty- by level in the hierarchy, or, as in some hospitals, by function; • there may also, in a large spread-out works, be canteens in different locations- this is grouping by place, which is discussed below.
