Abstract

Discusses CIMAC′s demonstration system in the context of the DTI′s Open Systems in Manufacturing programme. Considers the way proprietary communication systems discriminate against integration, the way open systems encourage integration, and available technology for implementing open systems. Concludes that the main task of the initiative is realising the benefits of open systems, and that the technology exists.
