From the Back Cover:

A modern, all–inclusive look at manufacturing

In this modern, quantitative approach to manufacturing, Mikell Groover offers balanced coverage of the three basic engineering materials––metals, ceramics, polymers, as well as composites––along with recently developed manufacturing processes and electronics manufacturing technologies.

ThroughoutFundamentals of Modern Manufacturing, the emphasis is on manufacturing science and quantitative analysis of manufacturing processes. This emphasis helps students understand the relationships among the material properties and the process variables in a given manufacturing process.

Now updated and revised, this Third Edition of Fundamentals of Modern Manufacturing features:

  • New chapter on Nanofabrication Technologies, which describes the importance of nanotechnology and future commercial products that will be made possible by this technology.
  • Updated chapter on Microfabrication Technologies with new material describing how compact discs are produced.
  • More than 1700 end–of–chapter review questions, multiple–choice quiz questions, and quantitative analysis problems, including many new questions and problems in this edition. 

See manufacturing processes in action with SME videos!

This text is packaged with a DVD based on the Society of Manufacturing Engineers’ Fundamental Manufacturing Processes video series. The DVD contains brief video clips that promote visualization of key manufacturing processes. Chapters in the text include references to the videos, and several new end–of–chapter questions relate to the videos.
