Book Preface

Fundamentals of Modern Manufacturing: Materials, Processes, and Systems is designed for a fi rst course or two-course sequence in manufacturing at the junior level in mechanical, industrial, and manufacturing engineering curricula. Given its coverage of engineering materials, it may also be suitable for materials science and engineering courses that emphasize materials processing. Finally, it may be appropriate for technology programs related to the preceding engineering disciplines.

Most of the book’s content is concerned with manufacturing processes (about 65% of the text), but it also provides signifi cant coverage of engineering materials and production systems. Materials, processes, and systems are the basic building blocks of modern manufacturing and the three broad subject areas covered in the book.


The author’s objective in this and the preceding editions is to provide a treatment of manufacturing that is modern and quantitative. Its claim to be “modern” is based on (1) its balanced coverage of the basic engineering materials (metals, ceramics, polymers, and composite materials), (2) its inclusion of recently developed manufacturing processes in addition to the traditional processes that have been used and refined over many years, and (3) its comprehensive coverage of electronics manufacturing technologies. Competing textbooks tend to emphasize metals and their processing at the expense of the other engineering materials, whose applications and methods of processing have grown signifi cantly in the last several decades. Also, most competing books provide minimum coverage of electronics manufacturing. Yet the commercial importance of electronics products and their associated industries have increased substantially during recent decades.

The book’s claim to be more “quantitative” is based on its emphasis on manufacturing science and its greater use of mathematical models and quantitative (end-of-chapter) problems than other manufacturing textbooks. In the case of some processes, it was the fi rst book on manufacturing processes to provide a quantitative engineering coverage of the topic.
