Computer Integrated Manufacturing-The Product Enterprise System 860553

Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) is the conceptual basis for integrating the applications and information flow of product design, production planning and plant operations.
CIM necessitates a broad system view of the manufacturing enterprise including marketing, finance, research and engineering, production and business planning, and plant operations. To significantly improve the productivity of this product enterprise system, the critical determinant is technology.
The computer should serve as the system integrator in three key areas:
  • Process Mechanization
  • Information Systemization
  • Information Management
The ultimate capabilities of a well planned CIM system are:
  • Zero Learning Curve.
  • Zero Set-up Time.
  • Zero Inventory
