This article provides an overview of processing steps that are used in ceramics processing and related mechanical design considerations. It discusses various design approaches, such as empirical design, deterministic design, and probabilistic design. The article provides a general process design flowchart for ceramic processing, and a discussion on traditional ceramics and advanced ceramics. It describes the forming processes used in ceramics, such as wet processing, plastic forming, dry processing, and machining. Evaluation factors for different ceramic forming processes are summarized in a table. The article discusses vitrification and sintering that generally pertain to ceramic firing and concludes with a discussion on firing process factors.
