Description & Coverage
Description:

For many years, computers have been playing a prominent role in the process of product design and manufacture. As manufacturing continues to march into the future, there is a critical need to address the role of computer technologies in an integrated fashion, placing emphasis on product data exchange as well as product data management.

Integrating Advanced Computer-Aided Design, Manufacturing, and Numerical Control: Principles and Implementations presents basic principles of product modeling and manufacturing while featuring contemporary industrial case studies. A one-stop reference source for the latest international standards, and their implementations, this comprehensive title also expands beyond the traditional scope of the product development process to give a brief account on product data management (PDM) and product lifecycle management (PLM).

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Agent-based technology
  • Artificial neural network methods
  • CAD data exchange and CAD standards
  • Computer numerical control (CNC)
  • Computer-Aided Design (CAD)
  • Computer-aided process planning and
  • Feature technology
  • Function block-enabled integration
  • Geometric modeling
  • Human-Machine Interface
  • Integrated feature technology
  • Integrated, adaptable CNC systems
  • Integration of CAD, CAPP, CAM, CNC
  • Key enabling technologies
  • Knowledge-based systems
  • manufacturing (CAPP/CAM)
  • Product Data Management (PDM)
  • Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)
  • STEP standards
  • Web-based Technologies
Reviews & Statements

This book can be used as a source of modern computer-aided technologies and contemporary applications in the areas of CAD, CAPP, CAM, CNC, and beyond.

Editor/Author Biographies
Xun Xu has been working in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, the University of Auckland since 1996 after obtaining a PhD from the University of Manchester, then UMIST. Dr. Xu is currently an Associate Professor of Manufacturing Systems and leads the “Intelligent and Interoperable Manufacturing Systems” research group. Dr. Xu was a Guest Researcher at the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and a Senior Research Fellow at the Japan National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). He has broad research interests – from CAD/CAPP/CAM/CNC to product lifecycle assessment and management, and from 3D digitisation of artefacts to re-modelling and visualization. His recent research work has been around STEP-compliant design and manufacturing, in particular STEP-NC. Dr. Xu has over 100 research publications, and is now serving in a number of Editorial Boards for international journals and has guest-edited a few special journal issues. Dr. Xu also consults extensively in industry and has very close ties with industries both in New Zealand and overseas.
