Crystalline Structures In Materials
If you take a look around you, there are lots of products and this make you think that there are thousands of manufacturing processes to produce all of these products. But the situation is not like that actually. Yes, there are many of manufacturing processes to produce customer products, but we can define the general manufacturing processes by classification. So in this article, we will show you the general classification of manufacturing processes.
Manufacturing processes can be divided to two categories as, Processing Operations and Assembly Operations.
Processing operations has three main categories also such as; Shaping Processes, Property Enhancing Processes, Surface Processing Operations.
Assembly operations means that, obtaining products by assembling the produced parts. So this assembly processes divided to two main categories; Permanent joining and Mechanical fastening.
So this is the general classification of generaly manufacturing processes to produce general customer products.
