This paper presents a new vision of future intelligent manufacturing. Specific issues addressed are: avoiding actions that add no value by continuously making short-term and long-term improvements; running machines at near their limits of performance and quality; employing sensors and actors to machine materials more safely; controlling autonomous manufacturing cells and segments with special manufacturing or assembly control systems - all with the goal of opening the way to a new generation of CIM, using new information and communication technologies that are more decentralized, specialized, optimized, and capable of computer-assisted learning. Examples of learning manufacturing systems illustrate the new philosophy of production at the end of this century.
