Manufacturing Engineering and Technology, SI Edition presents a mostly qualitative description of the science, technology, and practice of manufacturing. This includes detailed descriptions of manufacturing processes and the manufacturing enterprise that will help introduce students to important concepts.

With a total of 120 examples and case studies, up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of all topics, and superior two-color graphics, this text provides a solid background for manufacturing students and serves as a valuable reference text for professionals.

Teaching and Learning Experience
To provide a better teaching and learning experience, for both instructors and students, this program will:

  • Apply Theory and/or Research: An excellent overview of manufacturing concepts with a balance of relevant fundamentals and real-world practices.
  • Engage Students: Examples and industrially relevant case studies demonstrate the importance of the subject, offer a real-world perspective, and keep students interested.

  • An excellent overview of manufacturing concepts is provided with a balance of relevant fundamentals and real-world practices.
  • Coverage of the latest technological advances, like rapid prototyping, the most dramatic change in manufacturing in recent years. Also includes coverage of nanofabrication, rapid tooling, and semisolid metalworking (Chapter 20).
  • Lists and process comparisons give students a through look at manufacturing processes and operations. The chapters on specific groups of manufacturing processes and operations feature lists of typical parts produced by the processes described in the chapter, as well as a list of competing and alternative processes to produce the same types of parts.
  • Four kinds of end-of-chapter problems help reinforce concepts in each chapter: Review Questions; Qualitative Problems; Quantitative Problems; and Synthesis, Design, and Projects.
  • Comprehensive bibliographies are far more complete than any other manufacturing textbooks.


  • A wealth of examples and industrially relevant case studies demonstrate the importance of the subject matter, offer a real-world perspective, and keep students interested and engaged.
  • Superior use of analogies, discussions, and problems motivate students’ interest in the material. For example, see the case studies on the manufacture of golf clubs (Chapter 24), artificial hip stems (Chapter 11), and monosteel piston (Chapter 31).
  • The two-colour design adds impact, clarity, and functionality as students read the textbook.
New to this edition
  • Recognising the proliferation of intelligent phones and the intention of Internet browsing ability in these phones and tablet devices, QR Codes have been introduced with this edition. Each QR Code is a link to a video solution to problems or a manufacturing process video.
  • The 56 video solutions are complete, step-by-step solution walkthroughs of representative questions from the text. The problems featured in video solutions provide additional assistance for students with homework or in preparing for an exam.
  • The 65 manufacturing videos provide students with real-world context and allow students to watch an interactive demonstration of relevant issues or problem-solving strategies.
  • Wherever appropriate, illustrations and examples have been replaced with newer ones to indicate recent advances in manufacturing.
  • To provide a better perspective of the topics covered, the text now contains more cross-references to other relevant chapters, sections, tables, and illustrations in the book.
  • The questions and problems at the end of each chapter have been significantly expanded.
  • The bibliographies at the end of each chapter have been thoroughly updated.
  • Every attempt has been made to ensure that figures and tables are placed on the same page as they are referenced in the text; this has been made possible by rearranging the page layout, including the use of margins on the pages.
