Discrete Manufacturing

Discrete manufacturing handles components, assemblies, and products which are distinct items. Examples include automobiles, machines, and consumer electronics.

Discrete manufacturing contrasts with process manufacturing, which uses liquids, gases, and powders to make products which are usually measured by weight and volume, for example, food, gasoline, chemicals and paint.
