  • Mbundo Tati Angola There are circumstances when this approach is adequate. But engineers should be just as concerned about how to supply the process with materials at the right rate and cost, and how to deliver the products to the next process or to the customer at the right price 2013-03-14 09:03:09
  • Mbundo Tati Angola Manufacturing applies to artificial products: it does not apply to natural products which grow on the surface of our planet, can be found in the Earth’s crust or exist in the atmosphere. On the contrary, such products are the source of what we call natural or physical resources and which are the starting point for all manufactured items. Natural or physical resources are also often called raw materials, but this term is more generally used to describe the input for any manufacturing process. Similarly the term product can be used to describe the output of any manufacturing process. So, crudely speaking, a raw material is anything that can be turned into something else and a product is anything for which there is a market. Example of the Manufacturing Process To a mining company, iron ore is a product: it mines its raw material directly from the Earth’s mineral resources. An iron producer operating a blast furnace uses this iron ore as a raw material and smelts it into a product, pig iron, in a blast furnace 2013-03-14 09:03:10
  • Mbundo Tati Angola We generally think of manufacturing taking place in a ‘factory’: an abbreviated form of the eighteenth-century word ‘manufactory’, which came from the same source. Manufacturing applies to artificial products: it does not apply to natural products which grow on the surface of our planet, can be found in the Earth’s crust or exist in the atmosphere. 2013-03-09 09:03:59
