The technology involved in manufacturing mainly involves product design and manufacturing engineering. In the latter field, the two main thrusts for improving output are: automation - through the use of computer integrated, flexible manufacturing to increase the efficiency of production; precision manufacturing - to produce components of high precision on which a wide range of higher-value-added products are dependent. The paper outlines precision processes which are thought to be relevant to Hong Kong and the techniques involved in controlling machines to very high degree of accuracy.
