Currently, manufacturing engineering assumes a great importance to industrialized countries (G7) and countries with emerging economies (BRICS). Manufacturing engineering is a discipline of engineering “dealing with different manufacturing practices and the research and development of systems, processes, machines, tools and equipment”. Manufacturing engineering is important to several advanced industries such as automotive, aeronautic, aerospace, alternative energy, moulds and dies, biomedical, etc.

This book aims to provide research and review studies on manufacturing engineering. This research book can be used for final undergraduate engineering courses (for example, mechanical, manufacturing, industrial, etc) or as a subject on manufacturing at the postgraduate level. Also, this book can serve as a useful reference for academics, manufacturing researchers, mechanical manufacturing and industrial engineers, and professionals in related industries with manufacturing engineering.
