The means of production is basically land and the relations of production are on those who own the land for example the feudal lords and those who lease the land from the feudal lords i.e. the slaves. This is achieved whereby the slaves till the lands and give the land produce back to the feudal lords. The feudal lords gradually adapts gradually adopted the advancement and adoption of manufacturing that amounts to a new means of production apart from land which was previously their major means of production. This leads to the transformation from feudalism to the next means means of production.
The third stage is the capitalist means of production. This stage is characterized by the emergence of technology, manufacturing, commerce and land as the means of production. The relationship of production includes the category that owns the means of production who are referred to as the bourgeoisie and the labourers who provide labour in the means of production referred to as the proletariats this leads to the differentiation of the society into two social classes.

This stage as a means of production is meant to correct distribution.
Orthodox Marxists argue that development is all about human society moving from one stage to another and each of these stages is being defferenciatied by mode of production adopted in that stage.
