While on the face of it, the act of piecing an auto together seems complicated, it really isn’t. As we have seen, discrete manufacturing is typically assembly line oriented, involving the progressive assembly of finished products via a number of work cells, each providing a predefined set of mechanical operations. These mechanical operations frequently involve the use of machines of different types, designed for the functions to be completed in each work cell. Typical machines might include lathes, welding machines, cutting machines, power wrenches, robots or lifts.

The controller compares the current value of the measured variable to the desired value—the set point—and determines if the process needs to be manipulated to bring the measured value into alignment with the set point. If so, the controller sends a signal to an actuating device, typically one operating a valve, which drives the change required. Through the valve, the actuating device manipulates a variable in the process, and the manipulated variable changes the process in such a manner as to cause the value of the measured variable to change.
