The development, manufacture and assembly of the CNC machine tool represent one side of the thing; however, the other side of the thing is to have under control the processes thanks to which this work is enabled. In addition to the detailed description of parts which such a product consists of, this book has also the effort to refer to these processes. The whole thing is watched comprehensively as the house having its foundations, perimeter walls and the roof.
Section 1 describes general coherences of the machine tool origination. The value creating chain which includes the material part as well as the immaterial part represents the essential building stone of every and each industrial enterprise. All cooperating sections and departments participate in the machine tool origination. Every enterprise is successful in a different way, therefore the attributes of a successful enterprise are mentioned here too. The designing process influences 70 % of all events in the industrial enterprise. Its interconnection with the other enterprise processes is more than obvious. The design engineers utilizevarious tools for their work, like for example:
• value management;
• analytic and numerical calculations;
• risk management;
• shape design.
That is why these tools are described in details so that the reader can recognize their force and ability to influence the creation of every and each machine tool. The newly introduced terms „designing criminalistics“ and „company’s criminology“ have the special status. They demonstrate the sovereign post of the design engineer in the value creating chain of the product origination. Introductory comments of Section 2 acquaint the reader with mechanical and industrial engineering.
The essential terms are mentioned here which are necessary for technicians to be able to communicate with each other. The core of the term «CNC machine
tools» is also explained from the historical point of view.

History of Czech and Moravian technical universities is very rich in the development field of our machine tools. This section also speaks about the important manufacturing enterprises from the Czech Republic which participate in high repute of national machine tools.
The essential design assembly groups are parts which are common for all machine tool types and these will be described in Section 3. These are the following ones:
• frame (supporting structure);
• linear and rotary feed assemblages;
• automatic tool exchange and automatic workpiece exchange;
• numerical control systems and check;
• functional and servicing sets;
• protective guards;
Sections 1, 2 and 3 form the foundations of the imaginary house which is called „House of the design of CNC machine tools“.
Machining centres (Section 4), other CNC machine tools (Section 5) and CNC machine tools for special production (Section 6) are the manufacturing means, without which no consumer product and even machine tools themselves can come into existence. A s it is known, a machine tool is able to manufacture another machine tool. These sections present designs of world famous companies.
Section 7 mentions the value added for the user of machine tools, namely:
• energy saving;
• application of mechatronic principles.
The indispensable book part is represented by the outline of development directions (Section 8), including the virtual reality and the influence of global economy on this development. Everything is completed by practical knowledge obtained within operation of machines (Section 9) and within the chip machining process. The
same section also mentions the other attributes accompanying the operation of every machine tool, namely:
• operation economy;
• installation, maintenance and operation;
• necessity to test every machine;
• possible retrofitting;
• selection of the suitable machine tool.
Sections 7, 8 and 9 create the roof of the imaginary house of the design of machine tools and this roof is carried by the walls – Sections 4, 5 and 6.
