Relations of Line and Staff Functions


The functions of a department can be as a line or a staff. The functions which have a direct responsibility of achieving the targets for production or sales are line functions. The staff functions are those which do not participate directly in the activity but aid line functions to achieve the targets. Production Planning, Marketing, Purchasing, etc., are staff functions. The distinction is more clear and precise at higher levels. The staff function is advisory but owns the responsibility for the results and in accountable for non-performance.
