There are four types of economic production that are considered to be the most significant: The primary sector, the secondary sector, the tertiary sector, and the quaternary sector. Nations with more types of sectors tend to be wealthier. The primary sector deals mainly with agriculture and livestock production, but can also refer to mining. Hunting and fishing also corresponds with this sector. The responsibility for those employed in this sector is to produce and gather raw materials to be sold, exported, or manufactured.

The secondary sector is manufacturing the raw goods. If the country has a surplus of raw materials, it is wise to use them in manufacturing. The finished product can be sold or exported. If the manufacturer is making something that requires raw goods that are rare in that country, they might have to import raw goods from elsewhere. This can become expensive. This is why manufacturers tend to make things using local items.

People who are employed in the tertiary sector are responsible for providing services to others. For example doctors, lawyers, taxi drivers, massage therapists, and mechanics are all employed in the service sector. They don’t create or sell things make of raw materials or manufactured goods. Instead, they provide services to their clients.

The quaternary sector contains employees who are considered the "intellectual elite.” Researchers, museum curators, teachers (especially at post-secondary institutions,) and artists are all a part of this sector. Some experts are saying there is now a quinary sector that includes CEOs, philanthropists, presidents of organizations, and movie directors. Basically, it refers to people with a lot of power. Obviously, not every nation has all four sectors, but most do. War-torn or developing countries often loose employees in the tertiary and quaternary sectors. It is important for a country to have all four in order to have a balanced economy.

The four types of production are:
- Job production
- Batch production
- Flow production
- Project production

In the job production, an individual or a group or worker handles the task. In the batch method, the work is divided into parts called batches which happens in the large organizations. Flow is same as batch but the queuing is eliminated and the process flows constantly. It happens mostly in the technology firms. And the project production is defining a production as a project for one time only.

Jobbing   single one off jobs and small numbers e.g 1-100
batch   larger production runs e.g. 100-100,000
mass   continous running that can be stopped e.g car production plant
flow   continous running that runs 24/7 e.g power plant or foundry works

1. Continuous type, eg.refinery, electricity generation, Here production is on a continuous basis of non-discrete items
2. Repetitive type, automobile production, production is on repetitive basis, discrete units
3. Batch type (pharmaceuticals,hotels), production is o batch to batch basis, instead of on large scale
4. Job shop (ship building and house construction.), all workers and materials are brought to work site and assembled to get final product.
