Most of the 'economy books' define manufacturing as the past of 'operations management'. O.C Ferrell, a professor at the Colorado Sate University explains it as the fact that operations management have only been concerned about the production of physical goods. He also defines manufacturing as, 'the activities and processes used in making tangible products, also called production.' According to that definition, it is difficult to date the real day of manufacturing. We could come back to the primary workshops that made items in relatively, significant numbers with the aim to exchange or sell them. The role of the people in charge of production has continuously improved as human life evolved. In the roman army for example, some people had to oversee the making of weapons and had to face some problems concerned with raw materials or with people employed for that task. But these roles, in the production of goods took a greater sense with the Industrial Revolution.
