Engineers rely on Groover because of the book’s quantitative and engineering-oriented approach that provides more equations and numerical problem exercises. The fourth edition introduces more modern topics, including new materials, processes and systems. End of chapter problems are also thoroughly revised to make the material more relevant. Several figures have been enhanced to significantly improve the quality of artwork. All of these changes will help engineers better understand the topic and how to apply it in the field.
This text is an unbound, binder-ready edition. Fundamentals of Modern Manufacturing: Materials, Processes, and Systems, 5th Edition, is designed for a first course or two-course sequence in Manufacturing at the junior level in Mechanical, Industrial, and Manufacturing Engineering curricula. Given its coverage of engineering materials, it is also be suitable for Materials Science and Engineering courses that emphasize Materials Processing. In addition, it may be appropriate for technology programs related to the preceding engineering disciplines. Most of the books content focuses on Manufacturing Processes (about 65% of the text), but it also covers Engineering Materials and Production Systems.
Reflecting the increasing importance of ceramics, polymers, composites, and silicon in manufacturing, Fundamentals of Modern Manufacturing Second Edition provides a comprehensive treatment of these other materials and their processing, without sacrificing its solid coverage of metals and metal processing. Topics include such modern processes as rapid prototyping, microfabrication, high speed machining and nanofabrication. Additional features include: Emphasis on how material properties relate to the process variables in a given process. Emphasis on manufacturing science and quantitative engineering analysis of manufacturing processes. More than 500 quantitative problems are included as end of chapter exercises. Multiple choice quizzes in all but one chapter (approximately 500 questions). Coverage of electronics manufacturing, one of the most commercially important areas in today's technology oriented economy. Historical notes are included to introduce manufacturing from the earliest materials and processes, like woodworking, to the most recent.
Fundamentals of Modern Manufacturing: Materials, Processes, and Systems, 6th Edition, is designed for a first course or two-course sequence in Manufacturing at the junior level in Mechanical, Industrial, and Manufacturing Engineering curricula. As in preceding editions, the author's objective is to provide a treatment of manufacturing that is modern and quantitative. The book's modern approach is based on balanced coverage of the basic engineering materials, the inclusion of recently developed manufacturing processes and comprehensive coverage of electronics manufacturing technologies. The quantitative focus of the text is displayed in its emphasis on manufacturing science and its greater use of mathematical models and quantitative end-of-chapter problems.
Fundamentals of Modern Manufacturing: Materials, Processes, and Systems is designed for a first course or two-course sequence in manufacturing at the junior level in mechanical, industrial, and manufacturing engineering curricula. Given its coverage of engineering materials, it may also be suitable for materials science and engineering courses that emphasize materials processing. Finally, it may be appropriate for technology programs related to the preceding engineering disciplines. Most of the books content is concerned with manufacturing processes (about 65% of the text), but it also provides significant coverage of engineering materials and production systems. Materials, processes, and systems are the basic building blocks of modern manufacturing and the three broad subject areas covered in the book.
Robert M. Grant combines a highly accessible writing style with a concentration on the fundamentals of value creation and an emphasis on practicality in this leading strategy text. In this new edition, he includes an even greater focus on strategy implementation that reflects the needs of firms to reconcile scale economies with entrepreneurial flexibility, innovation with cost efficiency, and globalization with local responsiveness. This edition also incorporates some of the key strategic issues of today including: post-financial crisis adjustment, the continuing rise of China, India and Brazil, and the increased emphasis on ethics and sustainability. Coverage is also provided on strategy in not-for-profit organizations. Contemporary Strategy Analysis, Text and Cases 8th Edition combines the text with an updated collection of 20 case studies. It is suitable for both MBA and advanced undergraduate students. Additional teaching resources are also available for instructors, including an instructor?s manual, case teaching notes, test bank, teaching slides, case video clips and extra cases. All of these resources can be accessed via the companion website: www.contemporarystrategyanalysis.com
