Under this business production strategy, a firm manufactures the end product only after the actual order is placed by the customer (Fleuren, Hertog & Kort, 2006, p.470). Although this production strategy makes the consumer wait more time to receive the end product, it facilitates more flexible customization as compared to buying from retailers’ shelves.

Also, the producer or manufacturer has to be ready for changes that the customer may make. The idea of pull production is to reduce excessive production and to utilize "Just-In-Time" as the management tool (Van der Laan & Teunter, 2006). Therefore, in the pull system, production is done according to the real needs of the customer. This implies that the process starts with the market and moves towards the company.
