Written by a team of educators with unmatched experience, in collaboration with a consortium of industrial representatives from Black and Decker, Boeing, Caterpillar, General Motors, Grumman, Tektronix, Texas Instruments, Westinghouse, and Xerox, Manufacturing Processes Reference Guide provides thorough descriptions of over 125 of the most important processes available to industry today. This important resource encompasses the entire spectrum of manufacturing, from "Abrasive Jet Machining" to "Wire Drawing." Used with Fundamental Principles of Manufacturing Processes, the two books provide all the information needed to identify the ideal process for a specific manufacturing requirement. "Todd, Allen, and Alting's book is intended to help integrate design and manufacturing engineering activities by providing students of engineering and designers in industry with easily accessible information about common manufacturing processes. The authors rightfully believe that the first step in designing a component is for the designer to become familiar with the processes that will be used in its manufacture. This always leads to more practical, less expensive, and better designed products. [Recommended for] upper-division undergraduate through professional." SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY Magazine.

✏Practice Management for Design Professionals Book Summary : In the mid-1960s geotechnical engineers paid the highest liability insurance of any profession and by 1969 were virtually uninsurable. As a result, the ASFE was founded and helped these engineers not only lower their insurance rates, but get to the point where, by 1980, they were the least liability-prone members of the design profession. Now, John Bachner and the ASFE tell all other design professionals how to accomplish the same task. This book, which incorporates the ASFE's Introduction to Professional Practice program for advancing architects' and engineers' knowledge of professional practice issues, addresses almost every aspect of the design professionals' practice as they relate to liability, from procedures for verifying the accuracy of technical output to steps for improving client and project selection, workscope development, personnel training and dispute resolution.
