For many years, computers have been playing a prominent role in the process of product design and manufacture. As manufacturing continues to march into the future, there is a critical need to address the role of computer technologies in an integrated fashion, placing emphasis on product data exchange as well as product data management.

Integrating Advanced Computer-Aided Design, Manufacturing, and Numerical Control: Principles and Implementations presents basic principles of product modeling and manufacturing while featuring contemporary industrial case studies. A one-stop reference source for the latest international standards, and their implementations, this comprehensive title also expands beyond the traditional scope of the product development process to give a brief account on product data management (PDM) and product lifecycle management (PLM).
