what is manufacturing
What is Manufacturing?

It is defined as, the process of converting raw materials into products.

The word manufacturing is derived from the Latin word manu factus meaning made by hand.

It usually involves activities in which the manufactured product is used to manufacture other products.

Products are seldemly made of just a single part, such as a nail or bolt.

Most objects are constructed by assembling a number of single parts, and these components can be made from a variety of materials.

number of single parts in some products
Number of Single Parts in Some Products

Rotary Lawn Mower 300 parts

Grand Piano 12,000 parts

Automobile 15,000 parts

C-5A transport plane >4,000,000 parts

Boeing 747-400 >6,000,000 parts

manufacturing is a complex activity that involves a variety of resources and activities
Manufacturing is a complex activity that involves a variety of resources and activities:
  • Product Design
  • Machinery and Tooling
  • Process Planning
  • Materials
  • Purchasing
  • Manufacturing
  • Production Control
  • Support Services
  • Marketing
  • Sales
  • Shipping
  • Customer Service
Manufacturing is a vital part of a nations economy. It is said that a nation’s level of manufacturing activity is directly related to its economic health; the higher the level of manufacturing activity in a country, the higher the standard of living of its people.
the history of manufacturing
The History of Manufacturing
  • It dates back to about 5000 B.C.
  • It is older than recorded history
  • Primitive cave and rock markings made with tools that were manufactured for these purposes.
  • Primitive manufacturing of products for various specific uses began with articles made of wood and stone.

Environmentally Conscious Design and Manufacturing


  • In the United States alone, nine million passenger cars and about 300 million tires are discarded each year; about 100 million of those tires are reused in various ways.
  • More than five billion kilograms of plastic products are discarded each year.
  • Every three months, industries and consumers discard enough aluminum to rebuild the country’s commercial air fleet.

What Pollutes the Environment?

  • Lubricants and coolants are often used in most manufacturing operations.
  • Various fluids and solvents are used in cleaning manufactured products, some of these fluids pollute the air and water during their use.
  • Many by-products from manufacturing plants have been discarded for years (i.e., sand containing additives used in metal-casting processes; water, oil and other fluids from heat-treating facilities and from planting operations; slag from foundries and from welding operations.)
  • A variety of metallic and non-metallic scrap, produced in operations such as sheet forming, casting and molding.

The effects of these activities, their damage to our environment and to the earth’s ecosystem, and, ultimately, their effect on the quality of human life are well recognized.

  • Major concerns are water and air pollution, acid rain, ozone depletion, the greenhouse effect, hazardous wastes, landfill seepage and global warming.
  • Many laws have been set in place in the United States and other industrialized countries to help reduce the pollution.

What Can We Do?

  • Reduce waste of materials, by refinements in product design and reducing the amount of materials used
  • Reducing the use of hazardous materials in products and processes.
  • Conducting research and development into environmentally safe products and into manufacturing technologies.
  • Ensuring proper handling and disposal of all waste.
  • Making improvements in recycling, waste treatment and reuse of materials.

Computer-Integrated Manufacturing

What is computer-integrated Manufacturing (CIM)?

  • Software and hardware are integrated from product concept through product distribution in the marketplace.

Why is it effective?

  • Responsiveness to rapid changes in market demand and product modifications.
  • Better use of materials, machinery, and personnel, and reduction in inventory.
  • Better control of production and management of the total manufacturing operation.
  • The manufacturing of high quality products at low cost.

Major Applications of Computers in Manufacturing

  • Computer Numerical Control (CNC): Method of controlling the movements of machine components by direct insertion of coded instructions in the form of numerical data.
  • Adaptive Control (AC): The parameters in a manufacturing process are adjusted automatically to optimize production rate and product quality, and to minimize cost.
  • Automated Handling of Materials: Computers have made possible highly efficient handling of materials and components in various stages of completion, such as when being moved from storage to machines, from machine to machine, and at points of inspection, inventory and shipment.

Industrial Robots: introduced in the early 1960s, industrial robots have been replacing humans in operations that are repetitive, dangerous and boring, thus reducing the possibility of human error and improving productivity. Robots with sensory-perception capabilities have been developed with movements that simulate those of humans.


Automated and Robotic assembly systems: These systems mainly have replaced costly assembly by human operators, although humans still have to perform some of these operations. Products are now designed or redesigned so that they can be assembled more easily and faster by machines.

  • Computer-Aided Process Planning (CAPP): This system is capable of improving productivity by optimizing process plans, reducing planning costs and improving the consistency of product quality and reliability.
  • Group Technology (GT): The concept of group technology is that parts can be grouped and produced by classifying them into families, according to similarities in design and similarities in the manufacturing processes employed to produce the parts.
  • Just-In-Time Production (JIT): The principal of JIT is that supplies of raw materials, parts and components are delivered to the manufacture just in time to be used, parts and components are produced just in time to be made into subassemblies and assemblies and products are finished just in time to be delivered to the comsumer.

Cellular Manufacturing (CM): This system utilizes workstations that usually contain several production machines controlled by a central robot, each machine performing a different operation on the part.

  • Flexible Manufacturing Systems (FMS): These systems integrate manufacturing cells into a large unit, all interfaced with a central computer.
  • Expert Systems (ES): These systems basically are complex computer programs; they have the capability to perform various tasks and solve difficult real life problems much as human experts would.
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI): This important field involves the use of machines and computers to replace human intelligence. Computer controlled systems are now capable of learning from experience and of making decisions that optimize operations and minimize costs.

All of these help keep production costs down and also speed up the manufacturing process.


Lean Production and Agile Manufacturing

  • What is it?
  • Lean Production: A methodology that involves a thorough assessment of each of the activities of a company in order to minimize waste at all levels.
  • These include the efficiency and effectiveness of all its operations, the efficiency of the machinery and equipment, the number of personnel involved in each operation and the possible dispensing of some of its operations and managers.
  • This approach continues with a comprehensive analysis of the costs of each activity, including those due to productive and nonproductive labor.

Agile Manufacturing: A term indicating the implementation of the principles of lean production on a broad scale.

  • The principal behind agile manufacturing is ensuring agility in the manufacturing enterprise, so that it can respond rapidly to changes in product demand and in customer needs.
  • This flexibility is to be achieved through people, equipment, computer hardware and software and advanced communication systems.
