Part of the Advanced Manufacturing Series book series (ADVMANUF)


Computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM) is still in its early stages of development. The goal is to create a manufacturing shop in which all productive activities are controlled automatically, including machining, assembly, packaging and shipping, along with such related maintenance activities as failure diagnosis and repair, quality control and record keeping.
