Manufacturers use tools, human labor, machinery, and biological or chemical processes to transform raw materials-such as ore, wood, and foodstuffs, or component parts-into finished goods-such as metal goods, furniture, and processed foods. Manufacturing should be a profitable business because converting raw materials into finished products adds value that generally makes the finished product worth more than the raw materials that went into it.

Every manufacturer faces a variety of risks. This course deals primarily with the risks of direct loss or damage to a manufacturer's real and personal property, as well as the loss of income and extra expenses that invariably accompany a direct property loss, and how those risks may be insured.
