    Neither of the two basic ways we assemble things today–i. e., by people or by special-purpose machines–rests on a coherent body of analytically derived knowledge. These manufacturing methods, which may be accurately characterized as experience-based rather than science-based, have been the principal handicap in achieving major improvements manufacturing productivity. In the absence of ... View full abstract»

    If previous studies1-4 are any indication, there is a national need to develop advanced automation techniques to increase industrial productivity and to enhance the well-being of workers by eliminating hard, dangerous, and dull jobs. Although an ultimate goal might be a completely automated factory in which design, planning, scheduling, and manufacturing are all under computer control, automation ... View full abstract»

    The advancement and application of any manufacturing technique require two research issues to be resolved. First, the technique must be understood. That is, there must exist mathematical models of the technique's performance which have been experimentally verified. Second, the relation between the technique and other manufacturing processes with which it will work must be understood so that the ne... View full abstract»

    The life cycle of a mechanical component from its first conceptualization to its final packaging involves many intermediate processes such as product definition, engineering analysis, manufacturing planning, material procurement, and production control. These processes, of course, can be further broken down to finer steps or operations, but what is important to note is how these processes interact... View full abstract»

    Geometry plays a crucial role in nearly all design and production activities in the discrete goods industries. Curiously, these industries' primary means for specifying geometry—two-dimensional graphics—has not changed significantly for more than a century. Dramatic changes are likely to occur in the next decade, however, because the deficiencies of current methods are retarding the pr... View full abstract»

    The chip carrier concept was originally conceived as a square ceramic semiconductor package that could be surface reflow soldered to a ceramic substrate. Its advantages of reduced package size, higher board packing density, lower lead inductance and internal propagation delay, and easy assembly and disassembly were, unfortunately, limited to largely military applications.

    A question often asked of those closely associated with the affairs of the Computer Society is, "What can the society do for me?" Occasionally I have asked the same question. In these introductory comments, I would like to present one way in which our society, using part of the dues we each pay each year along with a great amount of volunteer effort, has been addressing the current and future need...

    Digital computers go back to the early 1940's, but significant work in computer science and engineering educaion was not to be seen until the 1960's. Originally, the customer training and education provided by the manufacturers resented virtually the only computer education available. Then in the 1950's, a large number of private computer schools emerged to fill the burgeoning demand for computer ... View full abstract»

    In November of 1976, the Computer Society's Model Curricula Subcommittee issued a report on "A Curriculum in Computer Science and Engineering." Two subject areas of that curriculum are summarized here: computer organization and architecture, and the associated laboratory sequence. The ensuing paragraphs provide some insight into the rationale which governed the committee's choice of topics and cou... View full abstract»
