This book presents a modern and attractive approach to computer integrated manufacturing (CIM) by stressing the crucial role of information management aspects. The 31 contributions contained constitute the final report on the EC Project TEMPUS No. 2609 aimed at establishing a new curriculum and regular education in the new field of information management in CIM at European universities.
Much attention was paid to the style of writing and coverage of the important issues. Thus the book is particularly suited as a text for students and young scientists approaching CIM from different directions; at the same time, it is a comprehensive guide for industrial engineers in machine engineering, computer science, control engineering, artificial intelligence, production management, etc.

This Millennium Boxed Set -- five elegantly printed books that describe their own method of creation -- celebrates Donald E. Knuth's monumental coupling of programming and typography in the TeX and METAFONT systems that are used worldwide by scientists, mathematicians, and others to produce high-quality, aesthetically pleasing text. Originally published in 1986, each volume has changed so much in subsequent printings that nearly every page has been touched. The improvements reflect new developments in digital printing technology; as well as corrections submitted by thousands of volunteers -- making these volumes the most accurate versions yet published. For readers who own earlier printings of Knuth's books, or have holes in their collections, the Millennium Boxed Set makes updating easy. For those who own none of the books, the boxed set is a convenient way to get them all at once.


Developing Performance Support For Computer Systems

RRP $260.99

Developing Performance Support for Computer Systems: A Strategy for Maximizing Usability and Learnability provides detailed planning, design, and development guidance for generating performance support for new or upgraded computer systems. Performance support includes documentation, online help, coaches and wizards, training, and other materials necessary to enable users to perform their jobs more efficiently and effectively.
This volume offers a strategy for maximizing ease-of-use and ease-of-learning through an integrated performance support systems approach. The text provides how-to guidance throughout that developers can apply directly to the design of their performance support tools and products. Rather than cover a few specific topic areas, it examines the entire spectrum of performance support. The book explains how to match performance support methods to task requirements, gives an overview of important user characteristics, and provides general guidance for presentation, layout, formatting, media selection, the use of color and icons, and accessibility. Evaluation checklists are included in the appendices and are also available online.
Although this book primarily addresses the development of performance support for large software systems, the principles and approaches are valuable for any systems development environment.

Before Google unveiled its new line of Nexus devices in 2012, few could've predicted the absolute frenzy these revolutionary devices would cause. Instant hits, each one of them - Nexus 4, Nexus 7, and the subject of this guide, Nexus 10 - is the best device ever released in its respective category. For newcomers to Android, the Nexus 10 is a pleasant surprise: better than every Android tablet that came before it, but also a better device than the ubiquitous iPad. In fact, the iPad's so-called "Retina Display" is not quite up to par with the Nexus 10's world-leading screen. For Android evangelists, the Nexus 10 is the "killer" device that everyone has been hoping for - the first tablet to marry Google's ideas about the future of computing with the top-notch execution that's been sorely needed from manufacturers of Android devices. While there's a little bit of a learning curve to get the most out of your new Nexus 10, don't worry; this guide will have you up and running in no time at all, ready to take full advantage of everything this tablet has to offer. We'll show everything you need to know to get started with the Nexus 10- Chrome, Gmail, Google Music, and everything in between. Whether or not you're already an Android user, you'll find plenty of helpful info within these pages. Ready to get started? Let's do it!


Computers In Translation

RRP $595.99

For forty years researchers have been attempting to develop systems that would emulate the human translation process. Because natural language makes this such a daunting challenge, machine translation has failed to penetrate the worldwide translation market to any appreciable extent. John Newton places machine translation in its true perspective and fully deals with its current limitations.
"Computers in Translation" is a comprehensive guide to the practical issues surrounding machine translation and computer-based translation tools. Translators, system designers, system operators, and researchers, present the facts about machine translation: its history, its successes, its limitations, and its potential. Three chapters deal with actual machine translation applications, discussing installations including the METEO system used in Canada to translate weather forecasts and weather reports, and the system used in the Foreign Technology Division of the U.S. Air Force. As a guide for non-specialists seeking to broaden theoretical knowledge of the practicalities of machine translation, it will be of particular interest to translators, technical authors, technical publications managers, and students and lecturers in language and linguistics.
