Virtual Manufacturing (Springer Series in Advanced Manufacturing)

Virtual Manufacturing (Springer Series in Advanced Manufacturing)

Product Description

presents a novel concept of combining with virtual reality for discrete and continuous manufacturing systems. The authors address the of manufacturing engineering, virtual reality, and computer science and engineering, before embarking on a description of the methodology for building augmented reality for manufacturing processes and manufacturing systems.
 
virtual manufacturing is centered on the description of the development of augmented for a range of processes based on CNC, PLC, SCADA, mechatronics and on embedded systems. Further discussions address the use of augmented reality for developing augmented reality models to control contemporary manufacturing systems and to acquire micro- and macro-level decision parameters for managers to boost profitability of their manufacturing systems.
 
Guiding readers through the building of their own virtual factory software, virtual manufacturing comes with access to online files and software that will enable readers to create a virtual factory, operate it and experiment with it.
 
This is a valuable source of information with a useful toolkit for anyone interested in virtual manufacturing, including advanced undergraduate students, postgraduate students and researchers.
