BMAED and MSB Reports NATIONAL ACADEMY OF ENGINEERING MANUFACTURING REPORTS NAE-02 MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS: FOUNDATIONS OF WORLD-CLASS PRACTICE 21 This report addresses the multidisciplinary nature of manufacturing, concentrating on the systems aspects. It addresses those generic issues reflected in world-class companies. The report is divided into two primary sections: foundations of manufacturing, and authored papers on globally competitive manufacturing practices. (1992, 284 pp. with index, available from NAP, ISBN 0-309-04678-5) NAE-01 DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF INTEGRATED MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS The report contains authored papers that explore the status of tools for designing and analyzing integrated manufacturing systems. Issues that arise in the use of these tools are also identified. The central theme of this report is that firms and researchers must abandon the narrow view of manufacturing-the view from a single perspective of the enterprise. They must learn to view manufacturing as a system interacting elements that can only be optimized in a broad context. There is a corresponding need to brealc down barriers between design and realization. (1988, 248 pp. with index, hard cover, available from NAP, ISBN 0-309-03 844-8)
