Manufacturing the Future

Manufacturing the Future

The primary goal of “Manufacturing the Future”, by V. Kordic, A. Lazinica and M. Merdan, is to cover the state-of-the-art development and future directions in modern manufacturing systems.


This interdisciplinary and comprehensive volume, consisting of 30 chapters, covers a survey of trends in distributed manufacturing, modern manufacturing equipment, product design process, rapid prototyping, quality assurance, from technological and organisational point of view and aspects of supply chain management.
