  1. Manufacturing

    Manufacturing is the production of goods for use or sale using labor and machines, tools, chemical and biological processing, or formulation. The term may refer to a range of human activity, from handicraft to high tech, but is most commonly applied to industrial production, in which raw materials are transformed into finished goods on a large scale. Such finished goods may be used for manufacturing other, more complex products, such as aircraft, household appliances or automobiles, or sold to wholesalers, who in turn sell them to retailers, who then sell them to end users – the "consumers". Manufacturing takes turns under all types of economic systems. In a free market economy, manufacturing is usually directed toward the mass production of products for sale to consumers at a profit. In a collectivist economy, manufacturing is more frequently directed by the state to supply a centrally planned economy. In mixed market economies, manufacturing occurs under some degree of government regulation. Modern manufacturing includes all intermediate processes required for the production and integration of a product's components. Some industries, such as semiconductor and steel manufacturers use the term fabrication instead.

Examples of manufacturing in a Sentence

  1. Chief Executive Anders Runevad:

    This is a more market-oriented approach, there is a different logic now that we get into an auction market. The EnVentus platform, the first new Vestas platform since 2011, will offer customers more flexibility than The EnVentus platform existing 2 megawatt( MW) and 4 MW platforms, Vestas said. The company is also launching new V150-5.6 MW and V162-5.6 MW turbines to run on The EnVentus platform. New EnVentus-based turbines will be built from standardised modules that fit other turbines rather than from parts that only fit one platform. New EnVentus-based turbines will make manufacturing, servicing and upgrading New EnVentus-based turbines simpler, Vestas said. Vestas, whose main rivals are General Electric( GE.N) and Siemens Gamesa( SGREN.MC), last month became the first to install 100 gigawatts of capacity globally. The wind power industry has been grappling with reduced subsidies in recent years and governments seeking more competitive contract tenders, increasing pressure on suppliers, turbine makers and wind farm developers to reduce costs.
