With BERCIM an overall concept has been created as an example for an open services environment for utilising services within a CIM scenario. Detailed concepts have been worked out as a contribution towards research and development in CIM, in what is largely a new field of distributed computing. The elaborated CIM-architecture conforms to the international standardization ODP and associated areas. Modelling was done in five views, utilising object-oriented methods. In an example of a CIM-scenario use is made of the various possibilities of a high-speed communication system. The realized CIM-applications are: 1) Distributed planning, programming and simulation for manufacturing cells with industrial robots (off-line programming), 2) Fault-tolerant area control computer, 3) Integrated remote Diagnosis and multimedia communications. The components of the distributed CIM applications are integrated with the aid of the component infrastructure, e.g. domains, trader, yellow pages, directory s ervice agents. The protocol architecture consists of the Lightweight Transport Protocol and the Group Internet Protocol.
