3. Plan Alternative Process: Find the number of processes by which the product or component can be manufactured. Obviously if only one process is capable of producing the required characteristics, then make or buy decision should be considered, based on comparative costs of self production versus procurement.

4. Evaluate Alternative Process: Usually, however the component can be made by two or more methods say. A,B, C, etc. Some of which may be at the plants disposal while others may involve subcontracts or new installations at the plant. It is therefore necessary to decide.

  • What additional function qualities result from the process in questions apart from the minimum requirements set in the specifications and how much do they cost?
  • How do the processes compare in costs at various production ranges. Break even analysis as explained earlier is used to select the economical process.
