Compare and explore small- and large-scale production, design criteria helps inform decisions on production methods.
- [Instructor] The method of production you choose will…depend heavily on the volume of production.…How many parts you need will help inform the scale.…Small scale production generally refers to manufacturing…that is done in more intensive per part human labor…often requiring highly skilled workers who can perform…a variety of tasks.…It may include specialized machinery…and combination with craftsmanship.…These goods are produced on the scale of handfuls…to hundreds of identical or similar items.…Small scale production methods can include 3D printing,…CNC of custom parts and vacuum forming for tray inserts.…
At this scale, the design process is more agile and able…to adapt to changes in design as needed.…For example, with CNC of custom parts it takes much…less setup time per individual design and as necessary…can update and produce families, variations, or series…of similar but unique items.…With 3D printing you can print individual, unique, and…complex projects each design taking similar amounts of time…and resources to produce.…
