une fabrication plus ou moins rapide

Does "plus ou moins," in this instance, mean "moderately" or "somewhat"? Or, does it mean, more literally, "more or less"? As in the pace of the production is "more or less" quick.

Thanks in advance for the help.

    It means more or less if it implies that the process is influenced by circumstances : plus ou moins rapide selon (...)
    It should be the meaning here.

    But you are right, sometimes plus ou moins can mean "moyennement", moderately.
