Introduction To Manufacturing Processes and Materials (99 Edition)by Robert C. Creese
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
The first manufacturing book to examine time-based break-even analysis, this landmark reference/text applies cost analysis to a variety of industrial processes, employing a new, problem-based approach to manufacturing procedures, materials, and management. An Introduction to Manufacturing Processes and Materials integrates analysis of material costs and process costs, yielding a realistic, effective approach to planning and executing efficient manufacturing schemes. It discusses tool engineering, particularly in terms of cost for press work, forming dies, and casting patterns, process parameters such as gating and riser design for casting, feeds, and more.
Book News Annotation:
A textbook for a graduate or advanced undergraduate course for engineers. Rather than taking the traditional approach of presenting each process related to manufacturing separately, integrates management, materials, processes, and design considerations. Emphasizes problem solving. Among the topics are the role of manufacturing in global economics, mechanical material property relationships, material codes and coding systems, process selection basics, metal casting, manufacturing plastic parts, bulk deformation, sheet metal forming, machining, tool design, and failure analysis and prevention.
