Process manufacturing one of two broad categories of manufacturing (the other being discrete manufacturing). In process manufacturing product is made in batches, using a batch ticket created based upon some formula. Instead of individual parts (screws, bolts, forgings, etc.), amounts of raw materials are used (ie: a x number of kilos) and specified processes are used (such as mixing) to produce a certain quantity of finished goods.

Examples of companies which would use process manufacturing would be paint, beverage, chemical, and many food manufacturers.
