Abstract

The Final Conference of the IIASA Project on Computer Integrated Manufacturing was held at the headquarters of IIASA in Laxenburg, Austria, on July 1-4, 1990. The Conference itself was co-sponsored by the Ford and Alfred P. Sloan Foundations, though much of the earlier research work owes its existence to funding by the Finnish Sitra Organization and the American National Science Foundation. In addition to these primary funders, much of the work carried out by individual researchers was funded by their own governments, research institutes, etc., this included major inputs from Japan and Czechoslovakia.

The aim of the research was to examine CIM from various perspectives including: technological characteristics, the diffusion process, managerial and organizational aspects, and the social and economic implications.

The Conference was attended by 105 people from 22 countries, including representatives from the OECD, UNIDO, the ECE, and the ILO. Of these participants 28 came from Eastern Europe and the rest from Japan or Western countries.

This Volume contains selected papers presented at the Conference, and transcripts of key parts of the policy discussion. The papers are organized in the following way: Part 1. Overviews; Part 2. Strategies and Models for CIM; Part 3. CIM Diffusion Studies; Part 4. CIM Technologies; Part 5. Organizational and Social Impacts; Part 6. Keynote Policy Panel Discussion; Part 7. CIM Implications for Industry and Government.
