Abstract

Considers how CIM can be used to integrate welding with other manufacturing processes and company functions. Discusses the benefits of CIM welding, the DAFNE systems methodology which defines the analytical and design steps of CIM, as well as the needs of automation, sub‐systems, and manufacturing in cellular terms. Surmises that the present trend is to shift detail from shopfloor equipment to intelligent systems, which integrating welding through CIM can help.
