For advanced undergraduate/graduate-level courses in Automation, Production Systems, and Computer-Integrated Manufacturing. Provides the most up-to-date coverage of automated production systems Automation, Production Systems, and Computer-Integrated Manufacturing provides up-to-date coverage of production systems, how they are sometimes automated and computerized, and how they can be mathematically analyzed to obtain performance metrics. The text is designed primarily for engineering students at the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate levels in industrial, mechanical, and manufacturing engineering. The book is also useful for practicing engineers and managers who wish to learn about automation and production systems technologies in modern manufacturing. This exploration of the technical and engineering aspects of automated production systems provides the most advanced, comprehensive, and balanced coverage of the subject of any text on the market. It covers all the major cutting-edge technologies of production automation and material handling, and how these technologies are used to construct modern manufacturing systems. The 5th Edition has consolidated and reorganized many of the topics, eliminated material that is no longer relevant, and revised end-of-chapter problems.

Comprehensive, detailed, and organized for speedy reference--everything you need to know about modern manufacturing technology. From concurrent engineering to fixture design for machining systems, from robotics and artificial intelligence to facility layout planning and automated CAD-based inspection, this handbook provides all the information you need to design, plan, and implement a modern, efficient manufacturing system tailored to your company's special needs and requirements. Handbook of Design, Manufacturing and Automation does more than simply present the characteristics and specifications of each technology--much more. Each technology is discussed both in terms of its own capabilities and in terms of its compatibility with other technologies, and the trade-offs involved in choosing one option over another are explored at length. An entire section is devoted to the business aspects of converting to the new technologies, including acquisition of automation, managing advanced manufacturing technology, and issues of cost and financing. The focus is on incorporating these technologies into a cohesive whole--an efficient, cost-effective manufacturing system. Other important topics include: * Design for automated manufacturing * Nontraditional manufacturing processes * Machine tool programming techniques and trends * Precision engineering and micromanufacturing * Computer-integrated product planning and control * Image processing for manufacturing * And much more

Employment trends in the field of robotics have changed over the years. Engineers and technicians no longer concentrate solely on robot technology; instead, they are capable of working on the entire production system. For this reason, any training in robotics must reflect this emphasis on the total system. The need for personnel who can design, develop, implement, and provide support for automated production systems with robots is significant and is growing. This fifth edition of "Introduction to Robotics in CIM Systems" includes information about the hardware, software, and programming that support the implementation of automated work cells and manufacturing systems. New in the fifth edition of the text: Goals and objectives listed at the beginning of each chapter. A career spotlight highlights careers related to the concepts being covered in every chapter. Updated information on safety and troubleshooting. A section outlining program commands for the Yaskawa robot. Major updates and additions throughout. Instructors who are using this book for a course should obtain the accompanying Instructor's Manual (ISBN 0-15-060245-0).
