Abstract

Describes the reasons for the development of CIM centre which addresses the problem of integrating different systems. Discusses the need to develop new products quickly, the manufacturers′ tendencies to call in vendors when planning systems integration which led to the centre′s conception, and the systems and facilities that the centre offers. Surmises that the centre offers a particular benefit in terms of objectivity, unlike the vendors themselves.
