Manufacturing is concerned with making products. A manufactured product may itself be used to make other products, such as a a large press, to shape flat sheet metal into automobile bodies, b a drill, for producing holes, c industrial sawing machines, for making clothing at high rates, and d numerous pieces of machinery, to produce an endless variety of individual items, ranging from thin wire for guitars and electric motors to crankshafts and connecting rods for automotive engines Fig.
Note that items such as bolts, nuts, and paper clips are discrete products, meaning individual items. By contrast, a roll of aluminum foil, a spool of wire, and metal or plastic tubing are continuous products, which are then cut into individual pieces of various lengths for specific purposes.
Because a manufactured item typically starts with raw materials, which are then subjected to a sequence of processes to make individual products, it has a certain value. For example, clay has some value as mined, but when it is made into a product such as cookware, pottery, an electrical insulator, or a cutting tool, value is added to the clay.
Similarly, a nail has a value over and above the cost of the short piece of wire or rod from which it is made. Products such as computer chips, electric motors, and professional athletic shoes are known as high-value-added products.
Brief History of Manufacturing. Manufacturing dates back to the period B. Table LZ , and thus, it is older than recorded history, the earliest forms of which were invented by the Sumerians around B. Primitive cave A. As you begin to read this chapter, take a few moments to inspect various objects around you: You soon will note that all these objects, and their numerous individual components, are made from a variety of materials and have been produced and assembled into the items that you now see.
You also will note that sofne objects, such as a paper clip, nail, spoon, and door key, are made of a single component. However, as shown in Table 1. Courtesy of Ford Motor Company. The materials first used in making utensils and ornamental objects included gold. Illustration by D. Over the centuries. The manufacture of items for specific uses began with the production of various household artifacts. EU wwya ag? M9 ab 'gow 9m we 6: E wig. Awiumg wg. JigI 2.
SEV tam Until the Industrial Revolution. Beginning in the early s. For example. Among the available materials are industrial or high-tech ceramics. Note particularly the progress that has been made during the 20th century. Mechanization began in England and other countries of Europe. A typical bulb then had a life of only about The Second Industrial Revolution is regarded by some as having begun in the mids with the development of solid-state electronic devices and computers Table 1.
The light-emitting component is the filament. A major advance in manufacturing occurred in the early s with the design. Further developments soon followed. Numerous improvements have since been made in both materials and production methods for making light bulbs. This example briefly describes the typical sequence of methods used in manufacturing incandescent light bulbs. Prior to the introduction of interchangeable parts. A wide variety of materials continually began to be developed. This technology soon moved to the United States.
By contrast. Section I. The filament is made by powder metallurgy techniques Chapter The first step in manufacturing a light bulb is making the glass stem that supports the lead-in wires and the filament and connects them to the base of the bulb Fig. Courtesy of General Electric Company. The filament is then attached to the lead-in wires. All these components are positioned.
The diameter must be controlled precisely. The wire diameter for a WL V bulb is 0. The portion of the lead-in wire that is embedded in the stem is made from an iron-nickel alloy. Design is a critical activity. The filling gas must be pure. The market for the product and its anticipated use s also must be clearly defined.
Innovative approaches are essential in successful product design. The air in the bulb is then exhausted through the exhaust tube which is an integral part of the glass stem.
The inside of the bulb either is left clear or is frosted thus making it translucent. The bulb base is generally made from aluminum.
Several types of glasses Section 8. The lead-in wires are usually made of nickel. The spacing between the coils must be precise.
The machine that performs this operation also solders or welds the lead-in wires to the base. Consider the case of a manufacturing engineer who. The bulbs are made by blowing molten glass into a mold Section This methodology may. Gas flames are used to seal the rim of the mount to the neck of the bulb. The product design process has been studied extensively.
The exhaust tube is then sealed. The Design Process. The completed stem assembly called the mount is transferred to a machine that lowers a glass bulb over the mount. Note from Fig.
The next step involves attaching the metal base to the glass bulb with a special cement.
It has been observed that just one drop of water in the gas that is used for half a million bulbs will cause blackening in all of them. To reduce friction and thus allow easy insertion of the bulb into a socket. After S.. Note that these decisions must take place at the material-specification stage the sixth box from the top in Fig.

The prototypes developed are carefully reviewed for possible modifications to the original design. Because all components. The information developed is stored and can be retrieved. Drsassembly and Service simulated. Virtual Prototyping. The models developed also allow the specification of the mechanical and physical properties required. Design modifications can be made and optimized as is often the practice in engineering. Virtual prototyping is a software-based method that uses advanced graphics and virtual-reality environments to allow designers to view and examine a part in detail.
A prototype is a physical model of an individual component or product. Virtual prototyping has been gaining importance. Assembly is an important phase of manufacturing and requires a consideration of the ease.
As described in Part VI. The design should take into account the concept that. After G. The concepts of design for assembly DFA. Individual parts may be assembled by hand or by a variety of automatic equipment and industrial robots. This methodology can be appreciated by anyone who has had the experience of servicing machinery. Experience has indicated that a product which is easy to assemble is usually also easy to disassemble. The choice depends on factors such as product complexity.
Methodologies and computer software are now available for design for assembly. General lntroduction characteristics. Products often have to be disassembled to varying degrees in order to service and.

Quality assurance and total quality management TQM are widely recognized as being the responsibility of everyone involved in the design and manufacture of products and their components.
Because products are typically made through several manufacturing steps and operations. I Machining a mold cavity for making sunglasses. A production machine. The traditional approach of inspecting products after they are made has largely been replaced by the recognition that quality must be built into the product from its initial design through all subsequent stages of manufacture and assembly.
The major goal of control is to prevent defective parts from ever being made. Three sigma in manufacturing would result in defective parts per million. TABLE l. Significant variations can be observed. Deming As an indication of strict quality control. In fact. Pioneers in quality control. They also pointed out the importance of online monitoring and rapidly identifying the sources ofquality problems in production. The level of defects is identified in terms of standard deviation.

The total cost of manufacturing a product generally consists of the following components: This methodology also includes a comprehensive analysis of the costs incurred in each activity and those for productive and for nonproductive labor.
General Introduction l. The percentages indicated can. The methodologies of both lean and agile production require that a manufacturer benchmark its operations. Benchmarking thus becomes a reference point from which various measurements can be made and to which they can be compared. An approximate. Flexibility can be achieved through people. Lean production focuses on a the efficiency and effectiveness of each and every manufacturing operation.
The lean production strategy requires a fundamental change in corporate culture. As an example of this approach. Agile Manufacturing. Raw-material costs depend on the material itself. Tooling costs include those for cutting tools. Production machinery. Another problem is the social impact and political implications of any ensuing lowered employment. As shown in Table 1. Labor costs consist of direct and indirect costs. Fixed costs include costs for energy. It is not surprising that today numerous consumer products are manufactured mostly in Pacific Rim countries.
Machinery costs can range from a few thousand to over a million dollars. A more recent trend has been outsourcing. As living standards continue to rise. There is increasing evidence. Although the cost of computer-controlled machinery can be very high. Reductions in the direct-labor share of manufacturing costs can be achieved by such means as extensive automation.
