Covers technologies and the future of manufacturing - with details of the product design process, rapid prototyping, a survey of manufacturing techniques relevant to production of consumer electronics or electromechanical devices, and the field of Biotechnology.
For one-semester, junior/senior- and first year graduate-level courses in survey of manufacturing processes and management of technology, in departments of engineering and business.
This text covers today's technologies and the future of manufacturing-with details of the product design process, rapid prototyping, a survey of manufacturing techniques relevant to today's production of consumer electronics or electromechanical devices, and the field of Biotechnology. It gives students a broader appreciation of the impact of manufacturing process and not just manufacturing per se. An exploration of broader issues includes: the time to market, development of a new product, launching products into the marketplace, quality control, and the impact of technology on the next generation of products.
