Description

This thoroughly updated version of Automation, Production Systems, And Computer-Integrated Manufacturing is an orderly devised textbook that is best suited for both graduate and undergraduate engineering courses and covers all major aspects of the subject ranging from the basic concepts to the advanced state-of-the-art technologies.

Summary Of The Book

Revised carefully to keep up with the syllabus requisites, this third edition of Automation, Production Systems, And Computer-Integrated Manufacturing serves as a handy reference as well as a classic classroom text for several engineering courses including production engineering, mechanical engineering and aeronautical engineering. Besides discussing various production systems, their automation and material handling, it also explores the latest methods being tried and adopted in terms of designing new manufacturing approaches.

In its 6 well structured parts, the book holds 26 chapters that comprise modules such as Manufacturing Operations, Industrial Control Systems, Industrial Robotics, Manual Assembly Lines, Cellular Manufacturing, Inspection Technologies, Concurrent Engineering and more. In this improved edition, Groover elaborates more on actuators like electric motors, engineering equations regarding the handling of such actuators, CAD/CAM techniques, etc. He has also included a few completely new sections in order to keep the text up to date with the current industry standards and learning requirements. These sections include the ones on RFID (Radio Frequency Identification), Six Sigma, and ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning). The volume even provides a much detailed coverage on Lean Production and other quality programs.

Each chapter is followed by a set of practice problems and review questions which help students in applying the concepts learnt. In an attempt to maintain a quantitative approach, the author explains relevant engineering equations, their mathematical derivations, and the guidelines for their practical application, all in a very lucid and easily understandable manner. He also quotes quite a number of vignettes and historical notes concerning automation technology's origin and background.

Splendid!!

I have used this book for three subjects in my UG course on Mech Engg!! This is the best book on the title I'v came across so far. All the topics are covered and are explained in the most lucid language. It provokes you to choose Industrial Engg as your mainstream!! All topics are explained till depth and lot of references are provided. I strongly recommend this book as a must have book for a Mechanical Engineer!!
