1. “Modeling Design Objects and Processes (Computer Graphics: Systems and Applications)” by Takaaki Yagiu

“Modeling Design Objects and Processes (Computer Graphics: Systems and Applications)” Book Review: Computer graphics is a sub-field of computer science which studies methods for digitally synthesizing and manipulating visual content. Although the term often refers to the study of three-dimensional computer graphics, it also encompasses two-dimensional graphics and image processing. The term product modeling is used to signify the construction of informational models of design objects and design processes in which it must be possible to include not a fixed set of attributes and relations, such as geometry, physical properties, part-of hierarchy, etc, but whatever aspects of design designers may desire to be included. The purpose of this book is to present the major results of the said effort, which are primarily of a theoretical or conceptual nature.

“Computer Aided Process Planning” Book Review: Computer-aided process planning is the use of computer technology to aid in the process planning of a part or product, in manufacturing. CAPP is the link between CAD and CAM in that it provides for the planning of the process to be used in producing a designed part. Process planning translates design information into the process steps and instructions to efficiently and effectively manufacture products. As the design process is supported by many computer-aided tools, computer-aided process planning (CAPP) has evolved to simplify and improve process planning and achieve more effective use of manufacturing resources. This book tries to focus on the concept of CAPP which helps in defining operations for production activity control purposes and define required resources for capacity requirements planning purposes.

“Modernes Sourcing in der Automobilindustrie (Informationsmanagement und Computer Aided Team)” Book Review: Outsourcing is one of the most important organizational concepts of today. In the automotive industry, too, original equipment manufacturers (OEM) are increasingly resorting to outsourcing in order to cope with the challenges of the dynamic and demanding market and competitive environment. On the basis of case studies on outsourcing at the entire vehicle level, Kathrin Schneider develops a practical method that enables the feasibility and internal consistency of outsourcing projects to be assessed.

5. “Applied Information Science, Engineering and Technology (Topics in Intelligent Engineering and Informatics)” by Gabriella Bognár and Tibor Tóth

“Applied Information Science, Engineering and Technology (Topics in Intelligent Engineering and Informatics)” Book Review: This book makes an effort to ensure certain equilibrium between theory and practice and to show some new approach both from a theoretical modelling aspect, as well as experimental and practical point of view. The objective of the book is to give a selection from the papers, which summarize several important results obtained within the framework of the József Hatvany Doctoral School operating at the University of Miskolc, Hungary. In accordance with the research areas, the papers can be classified into three groups. They are as follows: (1) Applied Computational Science; (2) Production Information Engineering (IT for Manufacturing included); (3) Material Stream Systems and IT for Logistics. As regards the first area, some papers deal with special issues of algorithms theory and its applications, with computing algorithms for engineering tasks, as well as certain issues of database systems and knowledge intensive systems. Related to the second research area, the focus is on Production Information Engineering with special regard to discrete production processes. In the second research area the papers show some new integrated systems suitable for optimizing discrete production processes in a top-down way.

6. “Computer Aided Process Planning for Rapid Prototyping” by Sarang Pande and Santosh Kumar

“Computer Aided Process Planning for Rapid Prototyping” Book Review: This book introduces the different problems related to the choice of rapid prototyping processes, in order to produce some particular parts or tools. Very often, people have no time to test different solutions or they have not experts for a comparative evaluation of the different possible industrial technologies. Of course, one could imagine that it is very difficult for somebody to know all the present technologies at a time, and to evaluate a multi-criteria choice. The knowledge-based system presented in this book will propose, from the specifications (numerical model quality, delay, cost, material, quantity), different alternatives of rapid prototyping processes, which will be discriminated and optimized when considering a combination of the different criteria of the specifications. The proposed system is based on actual machines and technologies, which are really accessible in the company or outside (subcontractors or laboratories), for the realization of each step of the complete processes.

7. “Product Design for Manufacture and Assembly, Second Edition, Revised and Expanded (Manufacturing Engineering and Materials Processing)” by Geoffrey Boothroyd and Peter Dewhurst

“Product Design for Manufacture and Assembly, Second Edition, Revised and Expanded (Manufacturing Engineering and Materials Processing)” Book Review: This comprehensive text provides a summary of the analytical tools used to evaluate the cost and difficulty of manufacturing and assembling proposed product designs, encouraging a continuous dialogue between designers and manufacturing engineers during the early stages of design. Along with this, the processes of sand casting, investment casting, and hot forging are also described in this book. These chapters, combined with the chapters describing design for machining, injection molding, sheet metalworking, die casting, and powder metals, cover a wide range of the most basic forming processes used in industry.

8. “Design Science: Introduction to the Needs, Scope and Organization of Engineering Design Knowledge” by Vladimir Hubka and W Ernst Eder

advertisement
“Design Science: Introduction to the Needs, Scope and Organization of Engineering Design Knowledge” Book Review: This book focuses on presenting a framework for the design of technical systems. This can be achieved through a general Design Science, a knowledge system in which products are seen as objects to be developed within engineering design processes. The authors have developed this design science from a division of the knowledge system along two axes. One deals with knowledge about technical systems and design processes while the other presents descriptive statements. Relationships among the various sections of the knowledge system are made clear. Well-known insights into engineering design, the process, its management and its products are placed into new contexts. Particular attention is given to various areas of applicability. Widespread use throughout is made of easily assimilated diagrams and models.

9. “Computer-aided Assembly Planning” by Alain Delchambre

“Computer-aided Assembly Planning” Book Review: This book presents different existing data structures used for the automatic generation of assembly plans. It describes the information required for generating these plans :the geometric description of the final assembly and of the components, the relational information between the components. The main subjects treated in this book are as follows. 1. Presentation and classification of existing systems of automatic generation of assembly sequences. Automatic assembly planning is, indeed, a very recent research area and, in my experience, no systematic study has been carried out up to now. The methodologies developed in this book deal with the integration of the assembly process from the initial design of the product to its production. In such an integrated system, assembly planning is one of the most important features. A well-chosen assembly plan will reduce both the number of tool changes and the fixtures within the assembly cell. It will prevent the handling of unstable subassemblies, simplify the design of the robot grippers and reduce production costs.

10. “Computer Aided Verification of Coordinating Processes – the Automata-Theoretic Approach (Princeton Series in Computer Science)” by Robert P Kurshan

advertisement
“Computer Aided Verification of Coordinating Processes – the Automata – Theoretic Approach (Princeton Series in Computer Science)” Book Review: This book develops the theory of automata-theoretic verification from its foundations, with a focus on algorithms and heuristics to reduce the computational complexity of analysis. It is suitable as a text for a one-or two-semester graduate course, and is recommended reading for anyone planning to use a verification tool, such as COSPAN or SMV. An extensive bibliography that points to the most recent sources, and extensive discussions of methodology and comparisons with other techniques, make this a useful resource for research or verification tool development, as well. The combination of requirements points directly to the widely recognized solution of automata-theoretic verification, on account of its expressiveness, computational complexity, and perhaps general utility as well are presented efficiently in this book.
