Computer Aided Manufacturing 2ND Editionby Tien Chang
Synopses & Reviews
This book presents an in-depth introduction to CIM and flexible or programmable manufacturing systems, from product design to manufacturing control. Industrial Engineering Second Edition presents the scientific foundations for understanding the issues and technologies of modern CAM and related design and system planning activities. The book covers the major topics of CAM and CAD, from introductory to advanced while considering manufacturing hardware and software, manufacturing systems and devices, automation, flexible automation, and computers in manufacturing. It presents an integrated view of engineering so that readers may gain a complete view of product design and development. The second edition of Industrial Engineering has been revised to include expanded coverage of Computer Aided Design, Tooling and Fixturing, Programmable Logic Controllers, and Concurrent Engineering; while coverage of AI in Manufacturing and CAPP Systems has been deleted. A valuable resource for any professional who needs to stay ahead of the latest issues and technology related to computer-aided design and manufacturing.
Book News Annotation:
This text offer a comprehensive view of manufacturing focusing on design, planning for manufacturing, automation, flexible automation, and computers in manufacturing. It is organized so that the first eleven chapters would be suitable for a course in automation, numerical control, and robotics; chapters 12 through 16 would work for a course on manufacturing-systems issues; and various combinations would provide material for a course addressing computer-aided manufacturing. This second edition includes new chapters on tooling and fixturing and concurrent engineering, as well as using abundant examples.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Using a strong science-based and analytical approach, this book provides a modern description of CAM from an engineering perspective to include design specification, process engineering, and production. The Third Edition of Computer Integrated Manufacturing includes new material on CAD drafting, 3D CAD, surface modeling, solid modeling, feature-based modeling, variational and parametric modeling, tools for PLC logic design, and kinematics of NC machines. New chapters include “Geometric Tolerancing,” “Geometric Modeling,” “Statistical-Based Process Engineering,” “Fundamentals of Industrial Control,” and “Rapid Prototyping.” A valuable resource for any professional who needs to stay ahead of the latest issues and technology related to computer-aided design and manufacturing.
