"Computer aided Production Engineering" contains valuable information from both industry and academia to discuss progress in research and development in this major branch of engineering that affects all industrialized countries. Manufacturing globally has witnessed major transitions, the rapid advancement in electronics and communication technologies enables design and manufacture to proceed on an international dimension that until now could not be anticipated. The advent of these technologies has affected large, medium, and small sized enterprises throughout the world. Emphasis is moving towards procedures that employ innovative and new uses of computer aided production engineering techniques as an aid to the manufacture of prostheses, by well known methods of computer aided design and manufacture, and the use of agile manufacture and robotics. "Computer aided Production Engineering" will be of great interest for all those involved in product design, manufacturing processes, automated machinery, and the most up to date advances in this far reaching area of engineering. Topics covered include: Computer aided Design and Manufacture; Computer aided Process Planning; Quality in Manufacturing and Design; Concurrent Engineering and Design for Manufacture; Production and Control; AI Applications in Manufacturing; Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management; Manufacturing Processes; Rapid Prototyping; Robotics in Medicine; and Computer aided Orthopaedic Surgery.
