With time passed, information and communication technology (ICT) penetrates into all aspects of industrial production and changes the whole process of industry. In the past years, small-sized enterprises have played an important role in the economy. But little attention has been paid to the usage of ICT in small-sized enterprises in China. In this paper, we analyses ICT–based issues from technicians in Linyi Xinyuan Friction Material Limited Company. The methodology for carrying out the tasks mainly contains questionnaires according to normative Delphi technique. The paper ends with recommendations which small-sized enterprises authorities should take in order to conform ICT in their production.
