The existing computer based control and management systems in the pulp and paper industry have been studied based on the published results and on the results of an exploratory survey questionnaire where major companies from 17 countries participated. Special attention has been paid to the user's opinions concerning both the experiences from the existing systems and the future direction of these systems. The potential benefits and drawbacks of combining all existing and forthcoming computer based systems in process control area and in management applications at various levels of organizations (mill-level, division-level or corporate-level) have been discussed. It seems very probable, that the mill-wide combination of these systems into a hierarchical structure with distributed hardware and local data network will be the most obvious implementation strategy in most pulp and paper mills during the eighties. The larger hierarchies do not show to have the same potentials inside companies; the future development here depends heavily on the SW development, standardization and experiences on mill-wide systems.
