WHAT IS MANUFACTURING?. Manufacturing is the process of converting raw materials into products. It encompasses the design and manufacturing of goods using various production methods and techniques. The word manufacturing is derived from the Latin manu factus , meaning made by hand.

Manufacturing is the process of converting raw materials into products. It encompasses the design and manufacturing of goods using various production methods and techniques.
The word manufacturing is derived from the Latin manu factus, meaning made by hand.
Modern manufacturing involves making products from raw materials by various processes, machinery, and operations, following a well-organized plan for each step.
The typical cost for each change made during the development of a major product
When changes are made Cost
During Design $1,000
During Design Testing $10,000
During Process Planning $100,000
During Test Production $1,000,000
During Final Production $10,000,000
If a design modification is made on a part, DE will determine the manufacturing consequences of that change.
In order to implement CE it should be provided:
Computer-aided design, engineering, and manufacturing simplifies construction and analyses of analytical models.
On the basis of these models, the product designer selects and specifies the final shape and dimensions of the product, its dimensional accuracy and surface finish, and the materials to be used.
Computer simulation helps in:
Computer simulation predicting tool performance
The final shape of the manufactured component can be achieved by:
the deviations from the basic size to each side determine the high and low limits
There is usually more than one method of manufacturing a part from a given material.
The parts are made as close to the final desired dimensions, tolerances, and specifications as possible.
Typical examples are: near-net shape forging and casting of parts, stamped sheet-metal parts, components made by powder metallurgy techniques, and injection molding of plastics.
