E-manufacturing is the application of Internet and intranet ICT technologies to the design, marketing and manufacturing of products, together with the management and control of manufacturing industries. This textbook covers the implementation of new technologies in manufacturing, the development of management strategies and the use of communication technology. Three broad areas are covered: development and application of management philosophies such as concurrent engineering; the use of ICT (Internet, intranet etc.); and modern advances in manufacturing technology. It also demonstrates the links between these areas and puts each into the context of a modern manufacturing company.
