This illustration shows how manufacturing operations convert inputs into finished outputs. Coca-Cola's bottlers and canners are concerned with a range of processes involved in transforming resources into the bottles and cans of drink that we are familiar with.

There is a difference between transforming resources and transformed resources:

  • The transforming resources are the managers, employees, machinery and equipment used by The Coca-Cola Company and its franchisees.
  • The transformed resources are the materials (the cans, bottles, liquids, etc.) and the information which are processed to create the finished product.
