Integrated Manufacturing Systems Engineering
We propose a general architecture for Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) based on the coordination, rather than integration, of component systems. The coordination process is achieved through inter-system dependencies controlled by a central, global coordinator. Coordination,like integration, may be either dataor application-oriented. In the case of data-oriented coordination, multidatabase technologies may be exploited to maintain global data consistency.
