1. “Automation, Production Systems and Computer-Integrated Manufacturing” by Mikell P Groover

“Automation, Production Systems, and Computer-Integrated Manufacturing” Book Review: This book is appropriate for advanced undergraduate/ graduate-level courses in Automation, Production Systems, and Computer-Integrated Manufacturing. This book provides advanced, comprehensive, and balanced coverage of the subject. This book covers the major concept of production automation and material handling and how these technologies are used to construct modern manufacturing systems. This book contains a quantitative approach that provides numerous equations and example problems for students to improve their understanding. The new edition of the book gives the following update; two new robot configurations, a section on programmable automation controllers, the section on AGVS technologies, sections on mass customization, reconfigurable manufacturing systems, and agile manufacturing, the section on CAD has been updated so that it is consistent with modern industrial practice.

2. “Computer Integrated Manufacturing: Current Status and Challenges” by Kiyoji Asai and I Burhan Turksen
3. “Computer Integrated Manufacturing” by C O’Brien and P MacConaill
4. “Qualification for Computer-Integrated Manufacturing” by Felix Rauner
5. “Crossing the Border: The Social and Engineering Design of Computer Integrated Manufacturing Systems (Human-centred Systems)” by J Martin Corbett

“Crossing the Border: The Social and Engineering Design of Computer Integrated Manufacturing Systems (Human-centred Systems)” Book Review: This book is of particular interest to researchers and practitioners in the area of factory automation, to students and researchers in AI, and all those interested in the human and organizational issues surrounding the computerized factory of the future. This book illustrates how users, social scientists, managers, and engineers can participate in the design and development of human-centered computer integrated manufacturing (CIM) systems. This book offers a unique insight into a large European project (ESPRIT project 1217) aimed at the design and development of a human-centered CIM system. The book analyzes the problems inherent in developing interdisciplinary design methods and of “crossing the border” between the social and engineering sciences.

6. “Fundamentals of Production Planning and Control” by Stephen N Chapman

“Fundamentals of Production Planning and Control” Book Review: This focused book concentrates on planning and control allows the readers to concentrate on fundamental principles, such as the development and application of software solutions, inventory management, and lean production concepts. This book includes topics such as forecasting, sales, and operations, scheduling, materials requirements, capacity management, production control, “partnering” activities, and system integration. This book is a suitable handbook for operations managers, production control workers, inventory control employees, and those involved in the supply chain, logistics, and materials management.

7. “Industrial Automated Systems: Instrumentation and Motion Control” by Terry L M Bartelt

“Industrial Automated Systems: Instrumentation and Motion Control” Book Review: This is the fitting book to provide readers with state-of-the-art coverage of the full spectrum of industrial maintenance and control, from servomechanisms to instrumentation. Readers will learn about components, circuits, instruments, control techniques, calibration, tuning, and programming associated with industrial automated systems. This book focuses on operation, rather than mathematical design concepts. It is formatted into sections so that it can be used for a variety of courses, such as electrical motors, sensors, variable speed drives, programmable logic controllers, servomechanisms, and various instrumentation and process classes. This book also allows readers a broader coverage of industrial maintenance and automation information and provides them with a more extensive collection of supplements, including a lab manual and two hundred animated multimedia lessons on a CD.

8. “Industrial Robot Handbook (VNR Competitive Manufacturing Series)” by Richard K Miller

“Industrial Robot Handbook (VNR Competitive Manufacturing Series)” Book Review: This book is for engineers and managers in manufacturing industries who are involved in implementing robotics in their operations. This book provides a summary of robot applications and presents case histories that might suggest applications to engineers and managers for implementation in their facilities. This book provides readers with some of the examples discussed in this handbook that incorporate older robot models, it is the application that is of interest.

9. “VLSI Test Principles and Architectures: Design for Testability (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Systems on Silicon)” by Laung-Terng Wang and Cheng-Wen Wu

“VLSI Test Principles and Architectures: Design for Testability (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Systems on Silicon)” Book Review: This book is a complete guide to new DFT methods that will show the students how to design a testable and quality product, including the drive down test cost, improve product quality and yield, and speed up time-to-market and time-to-volume suitable for electronic design and test engineers. This book comes with, most up-to-date coverage of design for testability, coverage of industry practices commonly found in commercial DFT tools but not discussed in other books, and numerous, practical examples in each chapter illustrating basic VLSI test principles and DFT architectures for easy understanding of the subject.

10. “Computer Automation in Manufacturing: An introduction” by Thomas O Boucher

“Computer Automation in Manufacturing: An introduction” Book Review: This book is written specifically for engineering students. The book does not require a specialized background and can be used as early as the third year of an undergraduate engineering program. This book provides instruction in computer architecture, interfacing to mechanical systems, and software development for continuous control and discrete event systems. This is achieved by presenting theoretical material and hands-on laboratory experiments to make the students industry-ready. This book covers the application of this technology from the machine level through the manufacturing cell and shop floor levels, provides broad coverage of subjects beginning with the architecture of computers and controllers, and ends with shop floor applications. This book also presents numerous end-of-chapter problem sets to enhance the understanding of the concept.
