input (materials, supplies)


Explanation:
I assume this is a product development outline, of a very generalized sort. I.e., (industrial) context, supply/input (availability), (industrial) process & product (production/manufacturing)--the output

From the Oxford Superlex:

insumos mpl (esp AmL) consumables (pl); insumos agrícolas
como semillas y fertilizantes agricultural inputs o
consumables such as seeds and fertilizers; un negocio de
insumos agrícolas an agricultural supplies business; los
hospitales recibirán ayuda en insumos the hospitals will
receive aid in the form of medical supplies
