Section One is introductory: Chapter 1 provides some background on manu-facturing and defines programmable automation. Chapter 2 explains calculation methods used to justify automation expenditures, as motivated by productivity concepts. Section Two covers computer numerical control: Chapter Chapter 3 introduces CNC technology, Chapter 4 discusses CNC programming, and Chapter 5 addresses CNC simulation. Robotics is covered in Section Three: Chapter 6 introduces robotics technology and Chapter 7 goes over both robotics programming and simulation. Section Four addresses PLCs: Chapter 8 introduces PLCs and Chapter 9 covers programming and simulation of PLCs. Finally, Chapter 10 concludes the text with a discussion of how all three technologies are brought together to create programmable automated workstations and work cells.

Genre: Mathematics

Diese für Studierende ebenso wie für Wissenschaftler, Ingenieure und Praktiker geeignete Einführung in mathematische Modellbildung und Simulation setzt nur einfache Grundkenntnisse in Analysis und linearer Algebra voraus - alle weiteren Konzepte werden im Buch entwickelt. Die Leserinnen und Leser lernen anhand detailliert besprochener Beispiele aus unterschiedlichsten Bereichen (Biologie, Ökologie, Ökonomie, Medizin, Landwirtschaft, Chemie, Maschinenbau, Elektrotechnik, Prozesstechnik usw.), sich kritisch mit mathematischen Modellen auseinanderzusetzen und anspruchsvolle mathematische Modelle selbst zu formulieren und zu implementieren. Das Themenspektrum reicht von statistischen Modellen bis zur Mehrphasen-Strömungsdynamik in 3D. Für alle im Buch besprochenen Modellklassen wird kostenlose Open-Source-Software zur Verfügung gestellt. Grundlage ist das eigens für dieses Buch entwickelte Betriebssystem Gm.Linux ("Geisenheim-Linux"), das ohne Installationsaufwand z.B. auch auf Windows-Rechnern läuft. Ein Referenzkartensystem zu Gm.Linux mit einfachen Schritt-für-Schritt-Anleitungen ermöglicht es, auch komplexe statistische Berechnungen oder 3D-Strömungssimulationen in kurzer Zeit zu realisieren. Alle im Buch beschriebenen Verfahren beziehen sich auf Gm.Linux 2.0 (und die darin fixierten Versionen aller Anwendungsprogramme) und sind daher unabhängig von Softwareaktualisierungen langfristig verwendbar.
