Strategic and organizational adaptation in CIM systems development
This paper presents the introduction of CIM as a catalyst to human resource and organizational change within manufacturing companies. The strategic benefits expected to accrue from full CIM implementation are reviewed and it is shown why these are frequently too important to be ignored by production organizations. However the adoption of CIM brings with it new demands for interdisciplinary working across traditional functional boundaries and so the paper reviews these aspects of CIM and suggests ways in which organizational and social problems may be overcome in the implementation of CIM.
