WIT Transactions on State-of-the-art in Science and Engineering
This book begins by presenting the concepts of and an engineering-oriented approach to e-manufacturing. Next the enabling technologies and implementation issues for e-manufacturing, including topics such as Java programming, database integration, client-server architecture, web-based 3D modelling and simulations and open computing and interaction design, are reviewed. There is then an exploration of application perspectives through a number of application systems developed by the authors based on their own front-end research and first-hand engineering practices. These include Internet based design support systems, mass customization, Java based control and condition monitoring, digital and virtual manufacturing systems, e-supply chain management and e-enterprise for supporting distributed manufacturing operations.
Designed for final year undergraduate elective courses on e-manufacturing and introductory courses on e-manufacturing at postgraduate level, this book can also be used as a textbook for teaching e-engineering in general. It will also provide a useful reference for design and manufacturing engineers, company managers, e-business/e-commerce developers and IT professionals and managers.
