Custom manufacturing Type of manufacturing process that is used to produce that is used to produce a single product or a small number of products usually to meet a customer particular need .
Drilling Act of cutting a circular hole down into the earth to extract water, natural gas , oil , and other material from under the earth surface .
Environmentally conscious manufacturing (ECM) Process concerned with the entire life of a product from the time the raw materials are gathered to the time the product life is over and it is dispose of. Tries to minimize scrap, reduce or eliminate hazardous waste, and makes the most effective use .
Facility engineering design of production facilities specifically for the efficient production of products that will be made in them .
Fixture Type of tooling used to guide a work piece .
Flow process chart Chart used to record and communicate the other processes dedicated by the manufacturing engineer to make each part .
Forming Mechanical process used to changed the shape of material through compression, bending, or stretching .
Harvesting Process of retrieving mature natural resources that grow on the earth .
Intermittent manufacturing Type of manufacturing process that produce smaller batches of the same part .
Jig 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 .
Manufacturing Process of changing raw materials to make them more useful .
Manufacturing engineering Design of machines, tools, and processes used to manufacture goods .
Material handling Movement of material and products through a plant .
Metal 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 .
Mining 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 .
Operation sheet Way the operation name, machine, and tooling are recorded and communicated .
Plant layout Plant layout is the most effective physical arrangement, either existing or in plans of industrial facilities i.e. arrangement of machines, processing equipment and service departments
Polymer a substance that has a molecular structure consisting chiefly or entirely of a large number of similar units bonded together,
Primary processing 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.
Process layout design for the floor plan of a plant which aims to improve efficiency by arranging equipment according to its function.
Product layout to a production system where the work stations and equipment are located along the line of production, as with assembly lines.
Quality control a system of maintaining standards in manufactured products by testing a sample of the output against the specification.
Raw materials the basic material from which a product is made.
Secondary processing 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.
Separating Process of cutting materials to the desired size or shape through mechanical, heat, or chemical means .
Society for manufacturing engineering (SME) Largest professional society for manufacturing engineers with over 500,000 members in more than 70 countries .
Thermoplastic denoting substances (especially synthetic resins) that become plastic on heating and harden on cooling and are able to repeat these processes.
Thermoset plastic type of plastic that is generally stronger than thermoplastic because it is cured with heat and pressure to crosslink the chains .
