Written in a conversational style, this book explores today's technologies and the future of manufacturing — through details of the product design process, rapid prototyping, a survey of manufacturing techniques relevant to today's production of consumer electronics or electromechanical devices, and the field of Biotechnology. It gives readers a broader appreciation of the impact of manufacturing process and not just manufacturing per se. A overview of the broader issues includes: the time to market, development of a new product, launching products into the marketplace, quality control, and the impact of technology on the next generation of products. Chapter topics cover manufacturing analysis; product design, computer aided design, and solid modeling; solid freeform fabrication and rapid prototyping; semiconductor manufacturing; computer manufacturing; metal-products manufacturing; plastics-products manufacturing and system assembly; and biotechnology. For executive education courses, appealing to both engineering and business professionals.

This book is built around the idea that your new company will be brainstorming a new technical idea, analyzing the market, developing a business plan, creating a conceptual product, fabricating a prototype, executing detailed designs, outsourcing the various aspects of electronic and mechanical manufacturing, and then launching the product for sale. The main chapters in the book deal with these topics, with particular emphasis on manufacturing technologies. Biotechnology has been added because of the substantial future career opportunities in this field. The book also aims to provide a balanced view for the management of technology.
