Two papers are presented here together in one package. The first is a general introductory and theoretical discussion of the problem of economic benefits estimation for CIM technologies. It was written by Robert U. Ayres, leader of the CIM project and Jeffrey L. Funk, now at Westinghouse R&D center. The second paper presents a particular (macroeconometric) methodology as applied to the benefits of robots and NC machine tools for a single country: Japan. It was written by Shunsuke Mori, a member of the CIM project team at IIASA. It is hoped that the results will be of considerable interest in themselves, as well as providing a viable model for future extension to other countries.
