With time passed, information and communication technology (ICT) has penetrated into all aspects of industrial production worldwide. ICT offer a new way in which ideas can be generated, communicated, and assessed. During the past years, medium-sized enterprises have played an important role in the economy. However, little attention has been paid to the usage of ICT in medium-sized enterprises in China. In this paper, we analyses ICT–based issues from technicians in Shandong Linyi Lingong automobile drive axle Limited Company. The methodology for carrying out the tasks mainly contains questionnaires according to normative Delphi technique. Some recommendations are proposed for medium-sized enterprises authorities to take in order to properly penetrate ICT in their production.
