Discrete manufacturing software FAQ
What is discrete manufacturing?

Discrete manufacturing is a manufacturing model where items are assembled from separate parts and the final product can be divided into bolts, screws, wires, and specific components. Learn more about discrete manufacturing in our blog.  

What is the difference between discrete and process manufacturing?

While discrete manufacturing assembles products from separate components and parts, process manufacturing creates the final products using formulas and various processes combined into a final result. 

Another difference is quantity — discrete manufacturing puts together one product at a time, even in mass production. Process manufacturing makes a batch of the final product and then separates it into smaller units that are fit for sale.
