The new edition of CAD/CAM/CIM has been brought out to focus on the response of CIM technology to address to new challenges faced by manufacturing in the new millennium.
CIM is moving towards more and more sophistication in exploiting the capabilities of computer hardware and software. This book gives a detailed account of various technologies which form computer based automation of manufacturing activities.
Computer aided shape design and geometric modeling have been revised and an introduction to robust design has been added. Design coverage is enlarged by adding FEA. As far as manufacturing is concerned, numerical control, computer aided inspection, robotics etc. are dealt in detail. ERP, PDM, PLM, simulation tools and manufacturing simulation have been covered in more detail in this edition. Supply chain management, collaborative design and computer networking are also covered in this new edition.
This book is intended as a text book for students studying CAD/CAM/CIM and a reference book for manufacturing engineers.
