To objectively assess, manage, and compare manufacturing practices and results, organizations need a standard framework for classifying and defining processes.

APQC’s Process Classification Framework® (PCF) addresses supply chain management—and within that, manufacturing. This article details the processes relevant to manufacturing, as well as defines the specific activities within each process.

Understanding the processes can help your organization assess, manage, and benchmark your manufacturing performance.
