Reflecting the increasing importance of ceramics, polymers, composites, and silicon in manufacturing, Fundamentals of Modern Manufacturing Second Edition provides a comprehensive treatment of these other materials and their processing, without sacrificing its solid coverage of metals and metal processing. Topics include such modern processes as rapid prototyping, microfabrication, high speed machining and nanofabrication. Additional features include:

  • Emphasis on how material properties relate to the process variables in a given process.
  • Emphasis on manufacturing science and quantitative engineering analysis of manufacturing processes.
  • More than 500 quantitative problems are included as end of chapter exercises.
  • Multiple choice quizzes in all but one chapter (approximately 500 questions).
  • Coverage of electronics manufacturing, one of the most commercially important areas in today's technology oriented economy.
  • Historical notes are included to introduce manufacturing from the earliest materials and processes, like woodworking, to the most recent.

From the Publisher:

This book takes a modern, all-inclusive look at manufacturing processes. Its coverage is strategically divided--65% concerned with manufacturing process technologies, 35% dealing with engineering materials and production systems. Groover adopts an approach that is more quantitative and engineering-oriented than most competing books, with more equations and numerical problem exercises. His goal is to make the subject of manufacturing processes more of an objective science and less of a descriptive art.

From the Back Cover:

A modern, all-inclusive look at manufacturing

In this modern, quantitative approach to manufacturing, Mikell Groover offers balanced coverage of the three basic engineering materials––metals, ceramics, polymers, as well as composites––along with recently developed manufacturing processes and electronics manufacturing technologies.

ThroughoutFundamentals of Modern Manufacturing, the emphasis is on manufacturing science and quantitative analysis of manufacturing processes. This emphasis helps students understand the relationships among the material properties and the process variables in a given manufacturing process.

Now updated and revised, this Third Edition of Fundamentals of Modern Manufacturing features:

  • New chapter on Nanofabrication Technologies, which describes the importance of nanotechnology and future commercial products that will be made possible by this technology.
  • Updated chapter on Microfabrication Technologies with new material describing how compact discs are produced.
  • More than 1700 end-of-chapter review questions, multiple-choice quiz questions, and quantitative analysis problems, including many new questions and problems in this edition. 

See manufacturing processes in action with SME videos!

This text is packaged with a DVD based on the Society of Manufacturing Engineers’ Fundamental Manufacturing Processes video series. The DVD contains brief video clips that promote visualization of key manufacturing processes. Chapters in the text include references to the videos, and several new end-of-chapter questions relate to the videos.
