A manufacturing business is any business that uses components, parts or raw materials to make a finished good. These finished goods can be sold directly to consumers or to other manufacturing businesses that use them for making a different product. Manufacturing businesses in world today are normally comprised of machines, robots, computers and humans that all work in a specific manner to create a product.
To keep people productive and parts organized, businesses empower mobile workers with rugged tablets. Equipping them with the right tool for the job means more work getting done in less time while have better insight in to inventory, projects, downtime, etc.
Repetitive - Best described as having a dedicated production lines that turn out the same item, or a closely related product, 24/7. Speeding up or slowing down the speed of the operation modulates differences in customer demand. There is little setup and changeover activity.
Discrete - Discrete manufacturing covers a range of projects from few setups and changeovers to frequent setups and changeovers. The products being made may be alike or highly disparate. The more unlike the products are, the longer is the unproductive set-up and tear-down time.
Job Shop - Job shops rarely have production lines, they have production areas. That designated area may assemble only one version of a product, a dozen versions, or even a couple dozen.
Process (continuous) - These types of operations are analogous to repetitive; meaning they run 24/7. The process to create the final product is typically a diverse set of processes.
Process (batch) - Sometimes one batch is all it takes to meet client/customer demand, and sometimes it takes several batches. In some instances, batch processes can be continuous in nature, making one batch after another of the same product.
