This guide can help you find Advanced Manufacturing Technology materials from various OER providers.
Please visit the Open Educational Resources Subject Guide to learn more about the following:
These textbooks and materials are open educational resources (OER) that are free to use without first seeking permission from the author. However, how they may be used is determined by their licensing .
Codes, regulations, standards, specifications, and recommended practices are used in all aspects of construction, fabrication, manufacturing, and inspection. The following list of lines and competencies was generated with the goal of creating an entry-level trades training resource, while still offering the flexibility for lines to be used as stand-alone books. Line D – Organizational Skills. D-1 Solve Trades Mathematical Problems, D-2 Apply Science Concepts to Trades Applications, D-3 Read Drawings and Specifications, D-4 Use Codes, Regulations, and Standards, D-5 Use Manufacturer and Supplier Documentation, D-6 Plan Projects. Special thanks to CAPER-BC (https://caperbc.ca/) for creating the audio recording for each Competency.
"The edition addresses issues essential to modern manufacturing, ranging from traditional topics such as casting, forming, machining, and joining, to advanced topics such as the fabrication of nanomaterials. Comprehensive coverage of relevant engineering fundamentals and traditional as well as advanced applications of manufacturing processes and operations. This book is written primarily for students in the mechanical, industrial, and metallurgical and materials engineering programs. A solid introduction to the fundamentals of manufacturing along with the most up-to-date information. Manufacturing processes and the concepts dealing with producing quality products are also covered." - Merlot
The purpose of these discipline specific pages is to showcase content that might be of interest to faculty who are considering adopting open educational resources for use in their classes.
