A serious problem facing manufacturing companies has been the tendency to separate the design and manufacturing functions into different organizational units. There is confusion of terminology concerning the engineering function called manufacturing. Engineering Design 5e. 3 Dieter/Schmidt. ©2013. The need to break down barriers between design and manufacturing is widely recognized today.Role of Manufacturing in Design     Producing the design is a critical link in the chain of events that starts with a creative idea and ends with a successful product in the marketplace.

Engineering Design 5e. ©2013. The McGraw-Hill Companies .Manufacturing Functions  Most conventional manufacturing is divided into the following functions:      Process engineering Tool engineering Work Standards Plant engineering Administration and Control 5 Dieter/Schmidt.

Engineering Design 5e. Tool engineering is concerned with the design of tools. and supervising to assure that materials. machines. tools. and people are available at the right time and in the quantities needed to produce the part. scheduling. Plant engineering is concerned with providing the plant facilities needed to carry out the manufacturing process. ©2013. Work standards are time values associated with each manufacturing operation that are used to determine standard costs to make the part. Administration and control deals with production planning.

or polymers by pressing and sintering. hot compaction. This rapidly developing manufacturing area involves the consolidation of particles of metal. usually metal. ceramics.Brief Description of the Classes of Manufacturing Processes  Casting Processes:  Molted liquid is poured into a mold and solidified into a shape defined by the contours of the mold. Dieter/Schmidt. A material. The wise use of polymers has brought about the development of processes tailored to their high viscosity. deformation. or plastic Engineering Design 5e. ©2013. is plastically deformed (hot or cold) to give it improved properties and change its shape.

Dieter/Schmidt.  Batch (Flexible Manufacturing System) :  Used when the product design is relatively stable and produced in periodic batches but the volume for an individual product is not sufficient to warrant the cost of specialized.Types of Manufacturing Systems  There are four general types of manufacturing systems:  Job shop:  Characterized by small batched of a large number of different part types every year. dedicated equipment.
