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 coverageof engineering materials, it is also suitable for materials science and engineering coursesthat emphasize materials processing. Finally, it may be appropriate for technologyprograms related to the preceding engineering disciplines. Most of the book’s contentis concerned with manufacturing processes (about 65% of the text), but it also providessignificant coverage of engineering materials and production systems. Materials, pro-cesses, and systems are the basic building blocks of modern manufacturing and the threebroad subject areas covered in the book.
