As a Job Shop Manufacturer, your needs are very unique. You are catering to a wide variety of customers with specific requirements and need to ensure that the customer is always happy, thus generating repeat business. You also need to ensure that you profit on every job, securing your success.
Typically each job is different from previous jobs. As such, estimates for the materials and labor need to be accurate and the manufacturing needs to be done to exacting standards.
Discrete Manufacturing or Job Shop Manufacturing is concerned with discrete units, bills of materials and the assembly of components, and can be contrasted with Process manufacturing which is the branch of manufacturing that is associated with formulas and manufacturing recipes.
