Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Vital to today's manufacturing processes, this book shows how CIM fits into the current manuafacturing systems and how the technology is used to solve real-world industrial problems. This is the only technology level text in Computer-Integrated Manufacturing. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From the Back Cover

Understanding the operation of a comprehensive CIM solution requires knowledge of traditional manufacturing practices, a look at the current state of CIM, and consideration of how technology and operating procedures may change in the future. The integration of product design techniques and manufacturing fundamental principles, along with a look at changing operations and information systems that support CIM throughout the enterprise, make Computer-Integrated Manufacturing unique.

This text is written to provide the technologist or engineer with a complete overview of the computer-integrated enterprise. It effectively accomplishes this goal by:

  • describing the different types of manufacturing systems or production strategies used by industries worldwide, and showing how the technology is used to solve actual industrial problems
  • going beyond the description of automated machines and software solutions to discuss all factors necessary for a successful CIM implementation
  • discussing the impact of CIM on all major elements of an enterprise–product design, shop floor technology, and manufacturing production and operational control systems
  • providing a convincing argument for implementing CIM so that the enterprise will be competitive in the global market

5.0 out of 5 stars Computer-Integrated Manufacturing December 8, 2000
Format:Paperback
Many manufacturing technology professors feel unsure about the nature and teaching computer integrated manufacturing (CIM)in their program. James A. Rehg and Henry W. Kraebber are dynamic authors, as they present CIM as a technical and strategic function of an organization. They offer a technical and management-based approach for understanding and implementing CIM in the "world class manufacturing" settings. Unlike other CIM books, Computer Integrated Manufacturing is written from the manufacturing technology professor's point of view with technical expertise. The CIM model used is consistent with the SME Manufacturing Enterprise Wheel developed by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers. This books explains the fundamental principles as well as practical applications of computer integrated manufacturing in a clear and effective manner and the illustrations complement the text well.

4.0 out of 5 stars COMPREHENSIVE TEXT ON CIM February 13, 2010
Format:Paperback
I enrolled in a Computer Integrated Manufacturing graduate course that used this text. Overall, the text is more qualitative based, but presents all the factors one may be exposed to if working in, or looking to implement CIM within their company. I would recommend keeping it for your personal library, but I only wish the text had a more quantitative focus.
