Please point me in the direction of introduction texts on manufacturing technologies that are used to create the types of designs and materials you would commonly find in car interiors and exteriors, and especially some texts that I can use to do high level costing exercises. I’m also particularly interested in lean and low-volume manufacturing tech for batches of say 250-1000 units but this can be worked around. Manufacturing time is also not required to be super fast if that matters.
I’m more than willing to buy books or courses that you may have in mind. To make it clear, I have no knowledge in this field and would appreciate any direction, perhaps simply recommendations on terms that I should Google or blogs that I can read. I literally only know about metal stamping and injection molding but know nothing other than their terms and basic concepts.
Thanks a lot and take care.
