Manufacturing or production is a process of transforming raw material into a product. It includes designing and producing products through various production methods and machines. Manufacturing activity is the backbone of a nation's development since it contributes between 20 - 30 percent of Gross National Product (GNP). Generally, as a nation's manufacturing activity increases, it will actually improve the standard of living of its populace. Manufacturing Engineering is a branch of engineering that requires knowledge, practical skills and experience in order to fully grasp, exploit and control all the engineering techniques in manufacturing process and methods of producing products. It also requires aptitude to plan for manufacturing methods, research and develop tools, process and machines as well as the ability to combine facilities and systems in the intention of producing cost-effective products in a more feasible way.
