As expected, the rate of response from the company is slow From the questionnaires obtained, most of the companies do not fully implement CIM ( fully automation ) As for example, DENSO still use manual labor in their production line The question asked in the questionnaires may trigger the confidential question
- SHARP implement CIM fully and DENSO still using manual worker. -the level of CIM component integration is still low as compared to other country -not fully automatic
companies in Malaysia used CIM but in different ways. Some companies don’t implement fully CIM on their manufacturing process Still depends on manual labor Implementing CIM cost big money
is a developing country so the implementation of CIM is fairly new For foreign companies in Malaysia, its up to the parent company to decide whether it is appropriate to implement CIM at their branch Even though CIM smoothen the product operation, but the cost of implementing it will require further investigation and a very lengthy process to seek approval.
