Justification of CIM and management strategies for CIM. Enterprise integration for CIM beyond and within geographical boundaries. Network communications for the implementation of CIM. Advanced tools and technologies for the application of CIM. Manufacturing system modelling. Application of artificial intelligence (AI)

CIM is an innovative and expansive concept. There is a need of utilising innovative and improved computer related technologies for the betterment of manufacturing industries.

The research in CIM and related technologies and the application of it in manufacturing industries are progressing towards a better future. Various developments in CIM components, which had been achieved need to be integrated into the CIM system in a cohesive manner to provide a complete and intelligent solution to the manufacturing Industries.
