One of the most important tasks of the CIM Project is to prospect the diffusion of advanced manufacturing technologies such as CIM and its components.

The author formulated an integrated model of technology diffusion in his previous working paper, entitled "Penetration Mechanism of New Technologies: Integrated Formulation from the Company Level to the Macroeconomic Level".

The present paper shows the extensions and applications of the above model. In order to explain the actual data, some modifications are made to the proposed model. The model extensions make it possible to take into account uncertainties through probabilistic modeling as well as more accurate modeling of learning curve effects. They reveal new hypotheses and new features of diffusion. The model extensions are also more realistic in the case of different benefits, but are still mainly restricted to technologies, the main effect of which is labor substitution.
