Manufacturing is the organized activity devoted to the transformation of raw materials into marketable goods. The manufacturing system usually employs a series of value-adding processes to convert raw materials into more useful forms, and eventually into finished products. In an industrialized country, the manufacturing industries are the backbone of the national economy, because it is mainly through their activities that the real wealth is created. Recently, there has been what may be termed as a revolution in the fundamental ways of thinking about manufacturing management. Manufacturing Systems Management is a discipline built upon a collection of methodological tools brought together to effect an integrated or "total" approach to problem-solving in manufacturing engineering and management, with productivity improvement as its overall objective.
