Process Planning: The Design/Manufacture Interface provides the student and engineer with a comprehensive guide to choosing the correct processes suitable for manufacturing the desired product out of the chosen materials. The authors incorporate this process selection into the design process thus allowing engineers to then consider the effect the various processes will have on the manufacturing of the product at the design stage rather than waiting until a prototype has been approved for production. Such consideration is a vital aid to efficiency in cost and time and is an essential skill in the modern manufacturing engineer. Containing numerous case studies and illustrations, this is the only textbook currently available in this area.

This textbook takes the reader on a product's journey from the design through to the finished itemFrom the Back Cover:
Process Planning covers the selection of processes, equipment, tooling and the sequencing of operations required to transform a chosen raw material into a finished product. Initial chapters review materials and processes for manufacturing and are followed by chapters detailing the core activities involved in process planning, from drawing interpretation to preparing the final process plan. The concept of maximising or 'adding value' runs throughout the book and is supported with activities.
Designed as a teaching and learning resource, each chapter begins with learning objectives, explores the theory behind process planning, and sets it in a 'real-life' context through the use of case studies and examples. Furthermore, the questions in the book develop the problem-solving skills of the reader.
ISO standards are used throughout the book (these are cross-referenced to corresponding British standards).
This is a core textbook, aimed at undergraduate students of manufacturing engineering, mechanical engineering with manufacturing options and materials science.
