Comprehensive, detailed, and organized for speedy reference--everything you need to know about modern manufacturing technology. From concurrent engineering to fixture design for machining systems, from robotics and artificial intelligence to facility layout planning and automated CAD-based inspection, this handbook provides all the information you need to design, plan, and implement a modern, efficient manufacturing system tailored to your company's special needs and requirements. Handbook of Design, Manufacturing and Automation does more than simply present the characteristics and specifications of each technology--much more. Each technology is discussed both in terms of its own capabilities and in terms of its compatibility with other technologies, and the trade-offs involved in choosing one option over another are explored at length. An entire section is devoted to the business aspects of converting to the new technologies, including acquisition of automation, managing advanced manufacturing technology, and issues of cost and financing. The focus is on incorporating these technologies into a cohesive whole--an efficient, cost-effective manufacturing system. Other important topics include:
* Design for automated manufacturing
* Nontraditional manufacturing processes
* Machine tool programming techniques and trends
* Precision engineering and micromanufacturing
* Computer-integrated product planning and control
* Image processing for manufacturing
* And much more

Offers up-to-date, cogent answers to the myriad problems arising in the design and operation of manufacturing processes. The main thrust is on the organization and transformation of resources into useful products and goods. Foremost practitioners and researchers present articles dealing with teams, design, fixtures, packaging, costs, robotics, inspection, scheduling, automation and much more.From the Inside Flap:
Computer integrated manufacturing (CIM) enables companies to cut production costs and increase worker productivity, while improving quality and reducing the occurrence of defects. In order to take full advantage of the potential offered by this array of new technologies, manufacturers must make major changes in the way they design products, view quality, store and transport materials, and coordinate the flow of materials and operations. They must also determine which of these new technologies are best suited to their particular needs and how to implement them at minimum cost. Handbook of Design, Manufacturing and Automation provides comprehensive and detailed information on the theory and applications of the entire spectrum of CIM technologies. Working with a team of more than 50 contributing authors—all of them recognized experts in their fields—Richard Dorf and Andrew Kusiak cover every aspect of modern automated manufacturing technology. Not only do they discuss the capabilities of different technologies, their compatibility with various systems, and the trade-offs associated with each option presented, but they also delve into design issues, financial analysis, ergonomics, and other topics relevant to the creation of entire, smooth-running manufacturing systems. This book provides quick and easy access to everything you need to know about:
