About this book
Flexible Manufacturing Systems (FMS) are computer-controlled, automated production lines capable of varied outputs: they put together computing software, robotics, manufacturing technology with existing engineering design skills to produce a very flexible system. Based on the author's own practical experience, this book provides a general insider's appreciation in keeping with current thinking in engineering education which will be suitable for advanced students. For the professional engineer, it stresses commercial as well as technical considerations.
