This book, based on the Fourth International Conference on Advanced Manufacturing Systems and Technology - AMST '96 aims at presenting trend and up-to-date information on the latest developments - research results and industrial experience in the field of machining processes, optimization and. In this timely book, Bonvillian and Singer tell the vitally important but unknown story of the Obama administration's advanced manufacturing initiative. In stark contrast to the conventional economic and political wisdom, they delineate a set of policies that would significantly strengthen the U.S. economy. If only Washington would pay attention. The s have witnessed a tremendous growth in the field of computer integrated manufacturing systems. The other major areas of development have been computer-aided design, computer-aided manufacturing, industrial robotics, automated assembly, cellular and modular material handling, computer networking and office automation to name just a few. These new technologies are generally . •The first fundamental problem of manufacturing systems engineering is: design the best possible system that meets specified requirements. •The second problem is: operate a system in the best possible way to meet specified requirements. The criterion for “best” and the requirements are defined in terms of the performance measures and.
