Automation, Production Systems, and Computer-Integrated Manufacturing – Mikell P. Groover – 2nd Edition


Production Systems, and -Integrated 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.

NEW ORGANIZATION. The second edition consists of five parts, following two introductory chapters:

1. Automation and control technologies: industrial control, control system components, numerical control, industrial robotics, programmable logic controllers.
2. Material handling technologies: conveyor systems, automated guided vehicle systems, automated storage systems, automatic identification and data capture.
3. Manufacturing systems: single station cells, group technology, flexible manufacturing systems, lines, transfer lines.
4. control systems: statistical control, inspection principles and technologies.
5. Manufacturing support systems: CAD/CAM, planning, production planning, production planning and control, lean production and agile manufacturing.

– Expanded coverage of automation fundamentals, numerical control programming, group technology, flexible manufacturing systems, material handling and storage, control and inspection, inspection technologies, programmable logic controllers.
– New chapters or sections on manufacturing systems, single station manufacturing systems, mixed-model line analysis, quality and statistical control, Taguchi methods, inspection principles and technologies, concurrent engineering, automatic identification and data collection, lean and agile manufacturing.
– Higher quantitative and engineering content in the text with more equations and example problems
– More quantitative problems on more topics: 385 problems in the new edition, 125 more than the 1987 edition.
– Historical notes describing the development and historical background of many of the automation technologies.
