A workshop is a room or building which provides both the area and tools (or machinery) that may be required for the manufacture or repair of manufactured goods. Apart from the larger factories, workshops were the only places of production in the days before industrialisation.


Some repair industries, such as the locomotive and aircraft repair operations have specialized workshops called backshops. For example, calibration and repair of United States Air Force test equipment is conducted at shops known as Precision measurement equipment laboratories.

Most repair works are carried out in small workshops, except where an industrial service is needed
