Layer 4: Stocks and flows
4.05. Production Flows: Manufacturing
Within the territory, what kind of information is available on materials and products moving in and out of the manufacturing industry? This should entail any material flow that is associated with economic activities in NACE code C and it can include the inputs into any manufacturing process, or the outputs (semi-finished or completely finished products). Data may be available on an economy-wide level if there is a reporting mechanism in place, or if authorities or others have done previous work on this topic. Alternatively it can be worth speaking with industry associations or local experts to see what kind of information may be available. Lastly, annual reports or websites of large companies may provide details on production of their facilities. However, this is only useful if the sector is dominated by a few players.
