Manufacturing Engineering Handbook

Manufacturing Engineering Handbook


Product Details

Let our teams of experts help you to stay competitive in a global marketplace. It is every company's goal to build the highest quality goods at the lowest price in the shortest time possible. With theManufacturing Engineering Handbook you'll have access to information on conventional and modern manufacturing processes and operations management that you didn't have before.

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.

Covering topics from engineering mathematics to warehouse management systems, Manufacturing Engineering Handbook is the most comprehensive single-source guide to Manufacturing Engineering ever published.
