The integration of information technology into industrial development and manufacturing is a worldwide phenomenon, the technical and economic effects of which are of great importance for the continued development in this area in all corners of the globe. Functional hardware and software components with integrated production facilities are already available, improved hardware and software (databases, networks) allow existing separate solutions to be linked together. CIM is, however, not an organizational and technological advance which can be achieved overnight. Once initial developments have been completed they must be integrated and partly updated. For a successful CIM installation, therefore, a modular concept, specific to the firm in question must be developed. The aim of the "Fabrik 2000" CIM demonstration (Factory 2000) by the Fraunhofer-Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation (IPA) is, therefore, to demonstrate practical and concrete solutions of computer integrate d manufacture and its advantages especially for the potential users in medium-sized firms, on order to enable the intorduction and application of computer integrated manufacturing. On the basis of a demonstration manufacturing plant with a continuous production process, CIM demonstrations, seminars and training programmes and conversion support are to be carried out. With the help of the installed and deliberately heterogeneous manufacturing and computer systems, various solutions for closed CIM chains, from the design through manufacture and assembly up to quality assurance must be implemented, in order to enable a general representation of the individual subareas of 'computer integrated manufacture'.
