His teaching and research areas include manufacturing processes, production systems, automation, material handling, facilities planning, and work systems. He has received a number of teaching awards at Lehigh University, as well as the Albert G. Holzman Outstanding Educator Award from the Institute of Industrial Engineers (1995) and the SME Education Award from the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (2001). His publications include over 75 technical articles and ten books (listed below). His books are used throughout the world and have been translated into French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese. The first edition of the current book Fundamentals of Modern Manufacturing received the IIE Joint Publishers Award (1996) and the M. Eugene Merchant Manufacturing Textbook Award from the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (1996).
Dr. Groover is a member of the Institute of Industrial Engineers, American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), the North American Manufacturing Research Institute (NAMRI), and ASM International. He is a Fellow of IIE (1987) and SME (1996).
- The 4th edition introduces more modern topics, including new materials, processes and systems.
- Increased emphasis on Nanotechnology.
- Discussion of Green Engineering and Sustainability and relationship to Manufacturing.
- Each chapter includes an end of chapter summary highlighting key concepts.
- 2 color presentation to allow for better understanding of the tools, machinery and processes
- Updated and enhanced artwork with 3D shading to help students visualize concepts better.
- Added examples across the textbook, approximately 30% new or updates from 3e.
End of chapter problems will be thoroughly revised (approx 40% new or updated).
· End-of-chapter problems. More than 750 end-of-chapter review questions and almost 500 multiple-choice quiz questions with many new and revised review questions and multiple-choice quizzes for all chapters.
· A DVD, based on the SME Fundamental Manufacturing Processes series, showing action videos of many of the manufacturing processes is included free with the book.
· Emphasis on manufacturing science and quantitative analysis of manufacturing processes. This emphasis enables student to understand the relationships among the material properties and the process variable in a given manufacturing process.
· Quantitative problems appear in every main section of the text. These problems offer good, assignable homework opportunities and provide balance to the more descriptive material in the text.
· Guide to Processing - Offers a Guide to Processing section in each of the four chapters on engineering materials which identifies the principal manufacturing processes used for that particular material type. Chapters and articles in the text are listed where these processes are described.
· Detailed Coverage of Topics Not Found in Other Texts: Provides a strong emphasis on ceramics, polymers, composites and their processing technologies, where most other books focus primarily on metals and the processing of metals only. This text contains full chapters on composites manufacturing, rubber processing, glass working, coating processes, mechanical assembly, electronics packaging and assembly, nanofabrication, and production lines--topics usually given less coverage in other texts.
· Product Design Considerations - Offers Product Design Considerations which present guidelines on design and nearly 40 Historical Notes of particular manufacturing technology origins.
