Manufacturing is the process of converting raw materials, components, or parts into finished goods that meet a customer's expectations or specifications. Such finished goods may be used for manufacturing other, more complex products, such as aircraft, household appliances or automobiles, or sold to wholesalers, who in turn sell them to retailers, who then sell them to end users – the "consumers". Manufacturing commonly employs a man-machine setup with division of labor in a large scale production.

These concepts can be applied to most industries, and will review topics such as manufacturing cost, process flow, quality, safety, scheduling and planning, metrics, IT, and warehousing and logistics.
