Manufacturing management Definitions

  • #

    4-D printing (four-dimensional printing)

    4-D printing is additive manufacturing that prints objects capable of transformation and, in some cases, self-assembly.

  • A

    advanced planning and scheduling (APS)

    Advanced planning and scheduling (APS) is a type of system that tracks costs based on the activities that are responsible for driving costs in the production of manufactured goods. (Continued)

  • Andon

    An Andon is a visual control that indicates the status of a machine, manufacturing line or process.

  • ANSI/ISA-95

    ANSI/ISA-95, more commonly referred to as ISA-95, is an international standard for enterprise and control systems integration developed for manufacturers.

  • asset performance management (APM)

    Asset performance management (APM) is both a strategy and a set of software tools for tracking and managing the health of an organization's physical assets.

  • C

    cartonization

    Cartonization is a process that uses algorithms to evaluate the items in an order to determine the number and size of each carton needed to ship the order.

  • Computer-aided process planning (CAPP)

    Computer-aided process planning is a link between design and manufacturing in a computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM) environment.

  • computer-aided software engineering (CASE)

    Computer-aided software engineering (CASE) describes a broad set of labor-saving tools used in software development.

  • D

    demand flow scheduling system

    A demand flow scheduling system is a software product designed to optimize demand-based manufacturing practices. (Continued)

  • Demand Planning

    Demand planning is the process of forecasting the demand for a product or service so it can be produced and delivered more efficiently and to the satisfaction of customers.

  • demand-driven manufacturing (DDM)

    Demand-driven manufacturing (DDM) is an approach to manufacturing where production is based on actual orders rather than forecasts.

  • digital modeling and fabrication

    Digital modeling and fabrication is a design and production process that marries 3-D modeling or computing-aided design (CAD) software with additive and subtractive manufacturing.

  • digital thread

    A digital thread is a strategy for connecting manufacturing systems and digitally linking a manufacturing environment from end to end.

  • digital twin

    A digital twin is a virtual representation of a product that can be used in product design, simulation, monitoring, optimization and servicing. It requires three elements: the physical product in real space, its digital twin in virtual space and the information that links the two.

  • discrete manufacturing

    Discrete manufacturing is an industry term for the manufacturing of finished products that are distinct items capable of being easily counted, touched or seen.
