Computer integrated manufacturing (CIM) enables companies to cutproduction costs and increase worker productivity, while improvingquality and reducing the occurrence of defects. In order to takefull advantage of the potential offered by this array of newtechnologies, manufacturers must make major changes in the way theydesign products, view quality, store and transport materials, andcoordinate the flow of materials and operations. They must alsodetermine which of these new technologies are best suited to theirparticular needs and how to implement them at minimum cost.Handbook of Design, Manufacturing and Automation providescomprehensive and detailed information on the theory andapplications of the entire spectrum of CIM technologies. Workingwith a team of more than 50 contributing authors—all of themrecognized experts in their fields—Richard Dorf and AndrewKusiak cover every aspect of modern automated manufacturingtechnology. Not only do they discuss the capabilities of differenttechnologies, their compatibility with various systems, and thetrade-offs associated with each option presented, but they alsodelve into design issues, financial analysis, ergonomics, and othertopics relevant to the creation of entire, smooth-runningmanufacturing systems.
