Production drawing

Production drawings illustrate how to manufacture a product, providing information about dimensions, materials, finishes, tools required, methods of assembly and so on.

Production drawings may be prepared by suppliers in response to engineering drawings provided by clients setting out their requirements. The production drawings describe the manufacturing processes that will be followed to meet those requirements. They are used as instructional reference documents by workers and their supervisors on the shop floor or production line to manufacture the products required.
