  • Pranjal Saxena India Its very nice & is delivered in a 'easy to understand' way. 2014-04-21 09:04:28
  • Craig Kutzner United States of America Course Module: Module 3: Manufacturing Process - Casting Course Topic: Casting the Food Mixer Gearwheel Comment: This course gives a good overview of processes used and the pros and cons of those processes . 2013-07-12 17:07:24
  • Ahmad Mirafzal Iran Course Module: Module 1: Introduction to Manufacturing ProcessesCourse Topic: Component PartsComment: The course is very interesting and I am really happy about that. It gives me a lot of knowledge especially concering on energy, minimum waste of materials and efficiently, economically product. 2013-05-19 12:05:52
  • 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
  • Mbundo Tati Angola Manufactiring will described how to making product...It is very important for any industrie because is a key. 2013-03-08 14:03:50
  • Mohammadreza Fathi Iran Course Module: Module 1: Introduction to Manufacturing Processes
    Course Topic: Component Parts
    Comment: We use tools to make other tools and achieve particular purpose and this chain never end. It's important for engineers that how produce a tools with minimum energy and material. 2012-12-09 09:12:10
