With the rapid development of Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM), Computer Aided Process Planning (CAPP) is becoming incresingly important since it plays a key role in CIM. This book systematically discusses process planning and how to implement computerized process planning systems. In essence, the aim of the book is to provide a comprehensive review of CAPP from a manufacturing engineering perspective. Strong emphasis is placed on the understanding of the fundamental principles allied with the implementation of CAPP systems. The book also provides state-of-the-art knowledge on all aspects of computerized manufacturing process planning technologies. Criteria on how to evaluate CAPP systems are also included. The book can be used as a graduate text for courses on Manufacturing Process Planning and Advanced Manufacturing Engineering. It is also eminently suitable as a reference book for guiding research activities in the area of developing CAPP systems and production integration. Production managers and manufacturing engineers will also find the book useful to update their knowledge.
'...clearly presented and with simple technical explanations.' Manufacturing Engineer 'Computerized Manufacturing Process Planning Systems is essentially a course text which can be used on advanced undergraduate and graduate programmes in manufacturing engineering systems. It would also be useful to practitioners and researchers wishing to become familiar with the elements of CAPP...the book is reasonably priced and represents good value.' David Bennett 'I found the book to be well structured and well written...I would recommend this book to anyone wishing to get up to date with the current state of Computerized Manufacturing Process Planning Systems.'
