About this series
This series of handbooks covers a comprehensive range of scientific and technological matters in precision manufacturing. The proposed handbook series aims to bridge the gaps by a systematically designed strategy to cover the required range of knowledge and essential understanding, and hence provide researchers and engineers a vehicle for achieving the optimization of the intelligent manufacturing chain. The readers will understand their role and position in precision manufacturing chain and hence understand how they could progress more efficiently and effectively. Junior researchers and engineers could seek their starting points of career development more easily and grab essential knowledge more systematically with a clear direction.
