Q: What is the difference between factory and plant and works and workshop ?
A: A factory is an industrial building (or group of buildings) where a company makes/manufactures or assembles products (in very large quantities), typically using big and heavy machinery.

A plant (in this context) basically just refers to any building (or group buildings) that are industrial (involved in some sort of industrial or manufacturing process) using industrial equipment or machinery. A factory is a type of plant, but a plant does not have to manufacture or assemble goods/products. For example, a power station (e.g. using nuclear or coal fuel) is usually referred to as a plant (a "power plant").

"Workshop" has two meanings:

The first meaning refers to a (typically large) room where people work on projects, creating/building things, or repairing things. Usually it involves some form of craftsmanship - i.e. hands-on activities like woodwork or welding (for example).

The second meaning refers to a conference, meeting, or event where a group of people come together and discuss a topic, teach others and learn about that topic, and/or practice or work together on activities relating to that topic.

"Works" is not commonly used as a noun in this context, although adding "works" to another noun as a suffix can sometimes indicate it's a place of work (e.g. "ironworks" is a place of work where iron goods are made). "Work" (without the "s") can just refer to wherever you work (perform the duties of your job).
