Computer Applications in Production and Engineering : IFIP TC5 International Conference on Computer Applications in Production and Engineering (CAPE ’97) 5–7 November 1997, Detroit, Michigan, USA

In the latter half of the 20th century, forces have conspired to make the human community, at last, global. The easing of tensions between major nations, the expansion of trade to worldwide markets, widespread travel and cultural exchange, pervasive high-speed communications and automation, the expl...
