Overview

Basic Manufacturing has already established itself as a core text for manufacturing courses in Further Education.

The authors' approach is student-centred with self-check questions and activities provided throughout. As a result, the book is well suited to independent study. It is also clearly written to appeal to students of all abilities. Review questions are provided at the end of each chapter to consolidate learning and give practice for external assessments.

The book is also an excellent, readable introduction to the technical and business aspects of the manufacturing industry that will be invaluable for students on a wide range of courses, including City & Guilds certificates. It also provides a good grounding for students on Advanced GNVQ programmes in Manufacturing.

The new edition has been revised to be fully in line with the new Intermediate GNVQ specifications, covering the three compulsory units and the externally assessed optional unit. The second edition includes a completely new chapter on Application of New Technology in Manufacturing.

A genuinely student-friendly manufacturing text Matched to the new 2000 GNVQ specifications Written by the UK's leading manufacturing textbook author and the Edexcel subject leader in charge of the new GNVQ scheme.
