Manufacturing concept – achieve goals, stay competitive

A manufacturing concept is an effective tool in the course of a production strategy. It defines the basic orientation of your production for the manufacture of goods and services. With a manufacturing concept, the goals of the company can be achieved as well as the competitiveness can be maintained or improved.

In order to create a manufacturing concept, the various manufacturing processes must be taken into account. These are classified in DIN 8580 according to common process principles.

Planning of your production according to standard DIN 8580

When creating a manufacturing concept, the first step is to keep track of possible manufacturing technologies. This helps when asking questions, for example, about alternative processes. In total, there are six main groups, which include several groups, subgroups, processes and process variants.

  • Original forms: If a workpiece is produced from shapeless material, it is referred to as a primary forming process. Processes in this group include casting, which uses molten starting materials, and sintering, which uses powders, pastes and granulates.
  • Generative manufacturing processes, which include 3D printing, for example, can also be assigned to the primary forming processes.
  • Forming: In this process, solid workpieces are produced by permanently changing their shape. These include rolling, bending, deep drawing, extrusion, extrusion and drop forging.
  • Cutting: In these processes, workpieces are changed by breaking the material cohesion. Possible processes for a manufacturing concept include machining, such as sawing, drilling, planing and milling, flame cutting, spark erosion, shear cutting and dismantling.
  • Joining: When workpieces are joined for the long term, they are referred to as joining. This includes, for example, welding, soldering, gluing, riveting, screwing and assembling.
  • Coating: In this process, a formless substance is applied to a workpiece as a firmly adhering layer. Examples include painting, hot-dip galvanizing, powder coating and electroplating.
  • Changing material properties: If the properties of a material are changed, this process falls into this main group. Examples are annealing and hardening.
