Primers are the first element of this Manufacturing Education Page . They are  focused on providing manufacturing-related educational materials.   The materials may be used to supplement existing manufacturing courses or may assist students/engineers in self study.  Writeups that provide individuals with basic knowledge and insights on manufacturing-related topics.   The primers include tutorial type information, graphics, and are updated periodically.    Students accessing these primers may also make use of listings of relevant research papers and reference texts as well as links to related Web sites for further information. Some of the materials taught in the primers may be used to solve the problems in the Home-Work Problems section.
