The diagram below shows the typical stages of consumer goods manufacturing, including the process by which information is fed back to earlier stages to enable adjustment.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words.
A sequential analysis of typical stages involved in consumer goods manufacturing along with the way which feedback is sent to earlier stages in order to better the manufacturing process is outlined in the given chart.
Overall, it is clear that there are specific stages in which feedback is sent to enable adjustment in addition to market research.
It is clear from the chart that the manufacturing process starts from the collection and storage of both raw materials and manufactured components. The next is a crucial step, which is production planning, which is done only after product research and design. The first feedback is taken after this stage, and the information is passed back to the previous step.
After production planning, the products are assembled, inspected and then tested. The second feedback is taken here, and the feedback is sent to designing stage. Once testing is over, the products are packed and dispatched for sales. A post-sale feedback is sent to both the production planning section and to the marketing research team. The marketing research department analyses the whole production process, particularly the sales and gives feedback to advertising, packaging and product design sections, and the process goes on.
