For example, if you are a manufacturing engineer responding to a request for proposal (RFP), you will find everything you need for estimating manufacturing cost, labor cost and overall production cost by turning to chapter 2, section 2.5, the manufacturing estimating section. The handbook will even outline the various manufacturing processes for you.

If you are a plant engineer working in an automotive factory and find yourself in the hot working portion of the plant, you should look up section 6 on hot work and forging processing. You will find it very useful for learning the machines and processes to get the job done. Likewise, if you are a Design Engineer and need information regarding hydraulics, generators & transformers, turn to chapter 3, section 3.2.3, and you’ll find generators & transformers.

Editorial Reviews

Review by:K. Srinagesh, University of Massachusetts DartmouthOver the last several decades, the technology of manufacturing has gone through changes, many drastic. There are so many innovations, additions, and acronyms that people who have been involved with manufacturing for the last 30 or 40 years are left wondering, at the heights of their careers, if they are strangers to the profession. To them, this book will be a welcome relief. At the same time, it serves amateurs as a guide to the ever-widening world of manufacturing. Editor Geng (Hewlett-Packard) has arranged 67 industry experts' contributions into 61 chapters. Compacted into only about 1,100 pages, this book covers all aspects of manufacturing: planning, processes, quality assurance, experiments, economics, marketing, management, etc. Most of the chapters are short, crisp, and loaded with the latest know-how. This reviewer recommends that all entry-level manufacturing engineers and students read at minimum at least a few selected chapters; and seasoned engineers, a lot more than that. This is a worthy addition to any library with even a few patrons interested in manufacturing. Summing Up: Essential. General readers; upper-division undergraduates through professionals.
