Introduction to Manufacturing Processes

October 2011, ©2012
Introduction to Manufacturing Processes (EHEP002177) cover image
Mikell Groover, author of the leading text in manufacturing processes, has developed Introduction to Manufacturing Processes as a more navigable and student-friendly text paired with a strong suite of additional tools and resources online to help instructors drive positive student outcomes.

Focusing mainly on processes, tailoring down the typical coverage of both materials and systems.  The emphasis on manufacturing science and mathematical modeling of processes is an important attribute of the new book. 

Real world/design case studies are also integrated with fundamentals -  process videos provide students with a chance to experience being ‘on the floor' in a manufacturing facility, followed by case studies that provide individual students or groups of students to dig into larger/more design-oriented problems.
