What is Discrete Manufacturing?
Discrete manufacturing is an approach to industrial production that results in individual final products. This is accomplished by taking incoming materials, parts, components, and/or subassemblies through a series of production steps that may include machining, assembly, etching, fastening, polishing, stitching, packaging, and more.
Discrete manufacturing results in final products that are distinct from one another and can be counted. It also typically produces items that can be broken down in their component parts.
