The following case studies serve as examples of the producibility principles presented in this guidelines document. These case studies have differing origins and different formats. Some are validated Best Practices identified through Best Manufacturing Practices program surveys. These are marked with the Best Practices seal. Others were submitted by various companies throughout the United States. All, however, illustrate how producibility principles can be applied effectively.
The producibility elements that the case studies
support have been identified and are shown below in Figure D.1 . In those instances where a case study supports more than one producibility element, primary support is indicated by a "P" and secondary support by an "S."
