Overview

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:

  • Automation and engineering design
  • Planning, scheduling, and control of manufacturing systems
  • Quality engineering
  • Information systems
  • Business aspects of design and manufacturing
  • Tools and techniques for design and manufacturing
  • And much more
For engineers concerned with manufacturing and engineering design, this book provides in-depth information on the integrative factors of the new technologies and how to select the right technologies to create the manufacturing system that is needed. For industry, executives and factory managers, it shows the way to developing cost-effective systems and processes that will sharpen your company’s competitive edge.
