A roadmap manufacturing system is basically a process that begins with only engineering input and then progresses under management direction through a variety of stages to its conclusion. Its main feature is the ability to generate routing and scheduling online without a need for the continued input of an engineer; therefore, it is able to assist management by supplying the objective information and simulations needed to make decisions of an engineering nature, such as facilities planning, expansion of manufacturing capabilities, and introduction of new manufacturing technologies.

This section does not pretend to be instruction in how to implement a roadmap system. I am not an expert in the subject. My objective is simply to show how a roadmap may assist by generating data for use in all stages of manufacturing.
