Describes advances, key information, case studies, and examples that can broaden your knowledge of composites materials and manufacturing methods. This text deals with composites manufacturing methods, providing tips for getting the best results that weigh the required material properties against cost and production efficiency. An Instructor's Guide is also available.
Manufacturing engineering department plays a very significant role in the manufacturing and operations functions. It conducts pre-production of newly designed products through potentially viable processes, and equipment functional system to derive the finished products that would meet product quality, production costs, and customer requirements. This book shows generously examples of facility, and production layouts, processes, methods, and materials flow to increase labor efficiency, and effectiveness of plant performance. It elaborates intensively the measurement methods of worker performance, machine utilization, and unproductive time. It emphasizes manufacturing problematic areas, avoidance of inefficiencies, and areas for improvement. This book also outlines quality control methods, business objective, strategy, and tactic methodology and implementation process, and decision theory and analysis. There are numerous illustrated examples, questions, problems, and solutions in each chapter to reinforce reader's comprehension of materials.
Cameras, alarm clocks and video game consoles were all once their own separate objects. Today, these items and many more are part of our phones. Inside this book, is the story of the objects before they become smartphone apps.
One day Liz accidentally slides down a sand dune. This is the story of the desert plants and animals that Liz learns about on her walk home. The sandy desert looks lifeless and lonely but it is actually home to many unique flora and fauna.
The complete guide to understanding and using lasers in material processing! Lasers are now an integral part of modern society, providing extraordinary opportunities for innovation in an ever-widening range of material processing and manufacturing applications. The study of laser material processing is a core element of many materials and manufacturing courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level. As a consequence, there is now a vast amount of research on the theory and application of lasers to be absorbed by students, industrial researchers, practising engineers and production managers. Written by an acknowledged expert in the field with over twenty years' experience in laser processing...
