DESIGN AND DOCUMENT MANUFACTURING PROCESSES Design and document with a system flowchart a computer-based manufacturing process that possesses the information flows of the manual systems depicted in Figures 7-9 and 7-13. Assume that the manufacturing process is triggered by a monthly sales forecast, which is received periodically from the marketing department in digital form. Further assume that all functional areas (work centers, storekeeping, inventory control, etc.) employ terminals that are networked to a centralized data processing function. Your system design should minimize hard-copy documents.

Explanation of Solution

Flowchart: A flowchart can be defined as a diagram which characterizes the process, workflow or an algorithm. This is a pictorial depiction that demonstrates a solution model for a provided problem.

The important elements of central manufacturing system include:

  • The control and production planning department should prepare the production schedule while considering the sales forecast.
  • Production documents such as bill of material and route sheet must be prepared under the production planning.
  • The purchase orders must be sent to the suppliers directly via mail or fax.
  • Work centers must examine their work schedules and required documents.
  • The employees should write down the time and the used materials when the work is finished...
