Difference between Produce, Create and Generate

The English language verbs Produce, Create and Generate have related meanings, but they are different, as I shall explain, using British English examples.

Produce is used to emphasise the the process of forming the end product. The method and rate of production is being highlighted.
"This school produces really talented students."
"The farm produces more wheat than it did five years ago."

Create is used to describe making a single object or a result. It emphasises the end result rather than the process of making it.
"We have created the greatest bridge in all the world."
"Can you please create something really special for my mother's birthday?"

Generate is used to when the thing being made is measured in a continuous quantity. 
"The power station generates lots of electricity."
"Our department generates the most profit for the company."
