Welcome to Lesson 5, on the definition and identification of manufacturing processes and the development of Process Flow Diagrams.
Here is what we will be discussing in this lesson:
1. What is a process? It’s not as obvious as you think!
2. How to create a Process Flow Diagram (PFD). This is the heart of this lesson. Every product needs to have a Process Flow Diagram assigned to it.
3. Tips for structuring your PFD, and eventual line design. Your PDFs will influence the eventual design of your line, so we’re offering here some guidelines on how to create them to optimize product flow.
