RESUMEN:"This book is intended for students of manufacturing at the associate degree or bachelor degree level in manufacturing, mechanical, or industrial engineering programs. The book emphasizes a mostly qualitative description of the science, mathematics, and the technology and practice of manufacturing, including detailed descriptions of manufacturing processes and the manufacturing enterprise." "The fifth edition has been completely updated and addresses issues essential to modern manufacturing, ranging from traditional topics such as casting, forming, machining, and joining processes, to advanced topics such as the fabrication of microelectronic devices and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)." "With a large number of case studies and examples, up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of all topics, and superior graphics, the book provides a good background for manufacturing students as well as for professionals."
