|Type of manufacturing process that produce smaller batches of the same part .
|Type of tooling used to guide tools to the correct location .
|Just-in-time (JIT) delivery system
|Delivery system that allows for the delivery of parts and materials at exactly the time they are needed in production .
|Process of changing raw materials to make them more useful .
|Design of machines, tools, and processes used to manufacture goods .
|Movement of material and products through a plant .
|Chemical element that belongs to one of the families of metals on the periodic table; a type of inorganic material with good conductivity to heat and electricity .
|Process used to extract materials like metal, coal, uranium, iron, diamonds, and stone from beneath the surface of the earth .
|Operations process chart
|Type of chart used to study all operations in the manufacture of an entire product .
|Way the operation name, machine, and tooling are recorded and communicated .

|a substance that has a molecular structure consisting chiefly or entirely of a large number of similar units bonded together,
|unconscious thought process that arises from the pleasure principle and is irrational and not subject to compulsion, such as condensation, which occurs in dreaming, or displacement, which occurs in the formation of a phobia.
|design for the floor plan of a plant which aims to improve efficiency by arranging equipment according to its function.
|to a production system where the work stations and equipment are located along the line of production, as with assembly lines.
|a system of maintaining standards in manufactured products by testing a sample of the output against the specification.
|the basic material from which a product is made.
|a thought process connecting the preconscious and conscious, governed by the reality principle and reflecting the decision-making and problem-solving activity of the ego.
|Selecting and sequencing manufacturing operations
|Decisions of what operations, or processes, will be used to create the product and in what order, or sequence, they will be performed.

|denoting substances (especially synthetic resins) that become plastic on heating and harden on cooling and are able to repeat these processes.
|type of plastic that is generally stronger than thermoplastic because it is cured with heat and pressure to crosslink the chains .
