    Welcome to A&M! Could you edit the question to make it a tad more specific? As it stands your question is quite unclear. Are you asking how a volume is determined? How the pages are made? How the artist deals with the workload?

The question wasn't completely clear, so my answer may not be what you are looking for. That being said, I will tell you how volumes are 'made'.

As you may know, manga chapters are published in magazines on a regular schedule. An example of such a magazine is the Weekly Shonen Jump.

However, if a manga is popular enough, some of the individual chapters published in the magazine are collected and published into a single book. This book is a volume. Once there are enough chapters, another volume will be published.

Hope my answer helped you.
