Sample Video Transcript

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

To ensure that a manufacturing process produces consistent products, the inputs of that process must be consistent. Inputs include the raw materials, settings, and procedures used to make the product. For pizza-making, examples of inputs include the ingredients used, such as the amount of dough, sauce, cheese, and pepperoni. If the amounts of individual inputs are not consistent, the final product may not be consistent. For example, the overall pizza weight may vary and the customer's expectations may not be met. By standardizing the process and creating an exact recipe for the pizza-making procedure, the pizzas are more likely to have a consistent weight, increasing the likelihood of meeting customer expectations.
