Presents an overview of the state of the art in mechanical design and production. Both basic and applied research papers highlight recent trends, techniques and case studies in two major fields: analysis and design of mechanical systems and components; production and industrial engineering. This volume also includes all the invited keynote lectures presented at the conference. Contains 73 papers.
