9/12/05. Manufacturing Group #3. Erica Velarde David Pincus Sean Clifton Ruben Sosa. 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.

The word manufacturing is derived from the Latin word manu factus meaning made by hand.
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.
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
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.
What is computer-integrated Manufacturing (CIM)?
Why is it effective?
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.
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.
All of these help keep production costs down and also speed up the manufacturing process.
Agile Manufacturing: A term indicating the implementation of the principles of lean production on a broad scale.
