Operations are divided into basic, resulting in altered form, size, properties, and mutual arrangement of parts, and accessories, the handling of the subject of labor from one job to another, warehousing and quality control. Depending on the level of technical equipment operation can be machine-manual, machine, automated, hardware. Manufacturing operations are divided into technological transitions, receptions, the labor movement. By the nature of the object of production distinguish simple and complex manufacturing processes. Simply called processes, consisting of a sequence of operations performed (harvesting, processing). The workpieces must have the technological similarities. Complex manufacturing process (assembly, adjustment and tuning) is different from the simple presence of assembly operations.
The structure of this process are part of the production of all necessary parts, processes, assembly of all components and subassemblies, General assembling the final product, its proof test and commissioning, and operation of packing and preparation for implementation. In general, the production cycle of a complex process involves many structural elements distributed between different units (shops) and the company performed over time as a series or in parallel. Performance of individual elements of a complex process requires some coordination, whose objectives are to minimize the total duration of the production cycle of manufacturing products and the completion of the entire production process by the deadline, as well as providing the most complete Download all parts and labor. The rational organization of the production process and all its parts, is based on several principles, chief among which are the differentiation, the concentration and integration, specialization, parallelism, balance, continuity, rhythm, ram, automaticity, flexibility, electronization.
