Integration of information flow in production systems must be mainly a functional integration. Isolated components of Computer Aided Technology are available; the integration of the components however means more than interfacing. Functional integration of Production Planning and Control (PPC) and Computer Aided Process Planning (CAPP) is worked out in the proposed paper. Mainpoint of interest will be the fact that an integration of the two functions can eliminate bottlenecks in process easily without overcharging at later time periods as well as producing inventory by choosing alternative routings. The complete functional integration is discussed and examples are given.
