manufacturing specification

Manufacturing Specification For my toy, I will be using one of these three things: Jig, former or a template of some sort. For my piece of work I will be using a template as I am basing my main box for the toy upon a regular sized box for all ready-made toys. All of these three things are still used in batch production as make the product suit its specification and enables you to reproduce the same product quicker and easier. It also speeds up rate of production making the whole process more efficient and cost effective. The product I am making is a toy with a mechanism and it will be self-supportive and very durable so children can put it under severe pressure without it actually breaking. It will have two large panels on the top and bottom and two smaller panels on either side of the toy.

All of this will be glued together instead of nails. This is the shape of the top and bottom panels This is the shape of the side panels The two large panels will be 26cm and the two side panels will be 12 cm making the overall shape a rectangle. This means that it will be an equal shape and none of the sides will slope making it an equal sided box. All these panels will be glued together making the overall piece strong and durable but not waterproof. Plan of action To plan the making of my toy I am going to use a numbered list telling me what to do and in what order. ...read more.
