For a company to survive and win in the manufacturing industry, it must not only accumulate light-weight 3D data, but also share this information within the company and with related companies, and train key personnel in the use of this data. 3D Manufacturing Innovation introduces the best practices developed by Toyota, Sony, Nikon, Casio and other pioneers in the global engineering scene, providing the reader with invaluable tips for manufacturing innovation.
3D Manufacturing Innovation is a valuable guide for corporate IT managers, consultants and professionals involved in CAD/CAM/CAE, as well as to vendors of digital engineering software.
"Collaborative Design and Planning for Digital Manufacturing" provides both a broad-based review of the key areas of research in digital manufacturing, and an in-depth treatment of particular methodologies and systems, from collaborative design to distributed planning, monitoring and control. Recent development and innovations in this area provide a pool of focused research efforts, relevant to a wide readership from academic researchers to practicing engineers.
The book is written for both students and practicing engineers who need in-depth instruction on how to use the software, and who need background knowledge of the PCB design process.Beginning to end coverage of the printed circuit board design process. Information is presented in the exact order a circuit and PCB are designedOver 400 full color illustrations, including extensive use of screen shots from the software, allow readers to learn features of the product in the most realistic manner possibleStraightforward, realistic examples present the how and why the designs work, providing a comprehensive toolset for understanding the OrCAD softwareIntroduces and follows IEEE, IPC, and JEDEC industry standards for PCB design.Unique chapter on Design for Manufacture covers padstack and footprint design, and component placement, for the design of manufacturable PCB'sFREE CD containing the OrCAD demo version and design files
