The process of transformation is done in the following ways:

  1. Disintegration : Here, one input (raw material) is used to produce many types of output. For e.g. Steel (Input) is used to produce many types of outputs like spoons, knives, plates, etc.
  2. Integration or Assembly : Here, many inputs are used to produce only one output. For e.g. many different inputs are used to produce a car.
  3. Service : Here, the value of the product is increased by providing services, for e.g. after sale service for a TV set.
