Bruce M. Spatz, vice president and executive publisher, Higher Education, John Wiley & Sons, Inc., has announced a partnership with the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), a leading professional society supporting manufacturing education, to develop content that brings real world manufacturing into the academic classroom. Through an exclusive agreement, Wiley and SME have adapted material from the SME Fundamental Manufacturing Processes video series and are distributing it on DVD with Wiley manufacturing texts. The DVD contains video clips shot at actual manufacturing plants, highlighting some of the most important manufacturing processes and topics. "Wiley's partnership with the Society of Manufacturing Engineers in creating the Fundamental Manufacturing Processes DVD supports our mission to create high-quality, value-added learning materials that help teachers teach and students learn," said Mr. Spatz. "By adapting clips from SME's instructive video series and putting them on DVD, students are now able to visualize important concepts discussed in Wiley textbooks," he added.
