This chapter gives an overview of ESPRIT project 1217 (1199), ‘Human-centred CIM Systems’, at the beginning of the final year of the three-year project. The object of the project is to produce human-centred CIM components, in which human skill and its application are optimised in harmony with leading-edge computerised manufacturing technology.
