Manufacturing Jobs In Africa - Heavy Engineering


Go To Job Board

Manufacturing is the process of adding value to raw materials by turning them into products: electrical goods, vehicles, aircraft, food, beverages, medical supplies, pharmaceuticals etc. Aodgreen focuses in the heavy industry manufacturing sector.
The term may refer to a range of human activity, from handicraft to high tech, but is most commonly applied to industrial production, in which raw materials are transformed into finished goods on a large scale.
Finished goods may be used for manufacturing other, more complex products, such as aircraft, household appliances or automobiles, or sold to wholesalers, who in turn sell them to retailers, who then sell them to end users and consumers.

History

In its earliest form, manufacturing was usually carried out by a single skilled artisan with assistants. Training was done by apprenticeship. In much of the pre-industrial world, the guild system protected the privileges and trade secrets of urban artisans. Before the Industrial Revolution, most manufacturing occurred in rural areas, where household-based manufacturing served as a supplemental subsistence strategy to agriculture (and continues to do so in places).

Economics

Various economists sees manufacturing as a wealth-producing sector as opposed to the service sector which is seen by them as a wealth-consuming sector. The manufacturing sector usually provides material for national infrastructure. Due to its nature the manufacturing sector involves huge amount of environmental and social costs.
