A sequence drawing, is one way of showing how the product you are designing could be manufactured in industry (in a factory). Basically it is a drawing of each stage of manufacture and includes brief notes or instructions. It normally follows a flowchart which simply lists each stage.
A sequence drawing is an important way of working out every stage of making a product and it allows the designer to recognise any possible problems before the product is made. It may be possible to work out the cost of manufacture, the number of people needed on the production line, the amount of materials required and many other important factors - through the construction of the sequence drawing.
Remember, flowcharts and time charts are also important ways of planning a project. They are usually drawn/written first.

The example below shows one way of setting out a sequence drawing on a design sheet. You will need to draw at least six to eight stages of making and these follow the same sequence as shown in your flowchart.
Remember to include ‘critical control points’ - this means - quality control. Use the flow chart you produced earlier to help you put each stage in order. Add notes to explain your thinking, in the boxes below each drawing.

     

     

The diagrams shown above are simple and clearly show the process that is taking place.
