Flexible Automation and Integrated Manufacturing 1998


The last decade has been characterized by global competitiveness and rapidly advancing technology in flexible automation, information management, and integrated manufacturing. The FAIM Conferences focus on state-of-the-art and future trends within these areas, and they differ from many other conferences in that they present an integrated picture of these related technologies. These proceedings cover computer integrated manufacturing and systems design, CAD/CAM and concurrent engineering, quality management, manufacturing automation, processes and systems.
