In Manufacturing Processes for Engineering Materials, the authors present information that motivates and challenges for understanding and developing an appreciation of the vital importance of manufacturing in the modern global economy. Numerous examples and case studies help to develop a perspective on the real-world applications of the topics described in the book. As in previous editions, this text maintains the same number of chapters while continuing to emphasize the interdisciplinary nature of all manufacturing activities, including the complex interactions among materials, design, and manufacturing processes.

With the 6th Edition, you'll learn to properly assess the capabilities, limitations, and potential of manufacturing processes and their competitive aspects.
