An energy-consuming subsector of the industrial sector that consists of all facilities and equipment engaged in the mechanical, physical, chemical, or electronic transformation of materials, substances, or components into new products. Assembly of component parts of products is included, except for that which is included in construction.
As an energy end use, any of the energy-using operations required for manufacturing/industrial processes. (See Energy End Use.)
"The Manufacturing sector comprises establishments engaged in the mechanical, physical, or chemical transformation of materials, substances, or components into new products. The assembling of component parts of manufactured products is considered manufacturing, except in cases where the activity is appropriately classified in Sector 23, Construction." [Go to source
The FTZ Board has defined it as any process that results in a change in customs classification of the merchandise, and therefore, requires prior clearance from the Board pursuant to the manufacturing conditions in specific Foreign Trade Zone grants. The U.S. Customs Service determines what constitutes manufacturing on a case-by-case basis, distinguishing it from other operations such as manipulation, processing, production and blending.
Making goods on a large scale using machinery.
The process of making a raw material into a finished product; especially in large quantities.
Production of goods primarily by the application of labor and capital to raw materials and other intermediate inputs, in contrast to agriculture, mining, forestry, fishing, and services.
process technology (i.e., metal forming, machining, injection moulding, blow moulding, die casting, forgings, electronics/electrical, assembly, coating/plating); capacity utilization (in percent); production volumes; strategic alliances (e.g., joint ventures, technology agreements).
Creating a product from specifications.

the process of turning raw materials into a product or good by hand or machinery.
this is the word used to describe the way that products are made in the world outside school. It usually implies making in quantity. For example confectionery such as Kitkats are manufactured at a rate of many thousands per hour.
(also called Heavy Industrial) auto making, textiles, steel, chemicals, and food processing are typical uses of such properties. Typically zero to five percent office space.
To make a product suitable for use, according to an organized plan, with division of labor, by hand or by machinery.
The industry concerned with the invention or fabrication of items or products. Manufacturing is Canada's chief economic activity, and is heavily concentrated in southern Ontario and Quebec. Major manufactures include motor vehicles, processed food, chemicals, aluminum, and iron and steel.
Making into a product suitable for use. [D02986] Webster

Process of creating equipment usually with machinery.
A series of interrelated activities and operations involving the design, material selection, planning, production, quality assurance, management, and marketing of discrete consumer and durable goods.
Manufacturing, a branch of industry, is the application of tools and a processing medium to the transformation of raw materials into finished goods for sale. This effort includes all intermediate processes required for the production and integration of a product's components. Some industries, such as semiconductor and steel manufacturers use the term fabrication instead.
