Computer integrated manufacturing (Lecture #13)

CIM (Computer Integrated Manufacturing)= Historical background = What is CIM? = Definition of CIM = Implementation and operation of CIM = Hierarchical and Distributed Control = (Virtual) Enterprises & ERP Systems = Data mining = Lean Production & Agile Manufacturing = Flexible Manufacturing System = Flexible Manufacturing Cell = Concurrent engineering = Design for X = Reverse engineering



Computer Integrated ManufacturingCIM allows the online and batchrelated acquisition of process and quality data. The flow of material within a multistage production process can be planned at any time and monitored from the central station.

Computer Integrated ManufacturingJob and materials management permits job-controlled production. Even if complaints are received years after delivery of the components produced, both production and quality data and the materials used can be easily determined.



CIM Conceptl l l l l l l l

Acquisition of possible quality-relevant data of different process steps Serial interfacing of SPCs of a wide variety of manufacturers Assignment of data of each process step to individual silicon wafers (materials tracking) Acquisition of the wafer quality Visualisation of the possible quality-relevant data on the wafer quality Evaluation of the data Data storage for long-time CAQ Job and materials management

Historical Background (I)1970s - 1980sFlexible Manufacturing Systems/Cells a group of CNC machinery/equipment linked by an automated materials handling system, whose operation is integrated by supervisory computer control Provided efficient mid-volume, mid-variety production Increased machine utilization Reduced work-in-process inventory, labor and tooling costs, setup costs, lead time, lot size Ability to react quickly to engineering changes



Historical Background (I)1980s...Computer Integrated Manufacturing computer assisted control and integration at all levels of a manufacturing enterprise Strict hierarchical information flow Totally automated, unmanned, paperless factory Integration problems in heterogeneousm environments

Historical Background (I)1990sIntelligent Manufacturing architecture for highly decentralized manufacturing systems, built from a modular mix of autonomous, cooperative, and intelligent elements (agents) Re-emergence of the human factor seeking to maximize the use of human intellectual skills and flexibility Migrating from hierarchy to Vertically Capability of rapid self-reconfiguration by incorporating human and machine intelligence



Historical Background (I)1990sExtended Enterprises global integration throughout the complete supply chain in manufacturing: Virtual Enterprise a community of factories each focused on what it does best, all linked by a network that would enable them to operate as one flexibly and inexpensively regardless of their location l An enterprise mostly made of functions provided by other enterprises l Extensive use of standards and information technology tool l Organizations and teams operate autonomously but cooperatively l Pushing toward true integration of design and manufacturing

What is CIM?l l l l l l l l l

a computer system? a management philosophy? a competitive strategy? a data management and networking problem? a concept? a technology? a method for eliminating direct labor? a deterministic technical system? a socio-technical system?



What is CIM?technology, tool or method used to improve entirely the design and manufacturing process and increase productivity

What is CIM?l

using computers to help people and machines to communicate series of integrated activities and operations involving the design, materials selection, planning, production, quality assurance, management marketing of discrete consumer and durable goods


deliberate integration of automated systems logical organization of individual engineering, production and marketing/support functions into a computer integrated system



What is CIM?l

focuses on the computer as the center of control of the entire factory, starting from the computerization of the fabrication and assembly processes to the information flow for production control, quality, maintenance, material handling,

What is CIM?l

involves the use of computers to assist in the design, handling, processing, cataloging of materials as they flow through the manufacturing processes


not computer controlled, but is the use of the computer assets to assist in difficult areas of manufacturing




use of electronic technology to streamline traditionally separate phases, including concept, design, manufacture, analysis, maintenance, into a single process in order to reduce lead time and improve quality of the product

What is CIM?

What is CIM?l

an approach to the organization and management of a firm, in which the functions of design, manufacturing, production management are mutually rationalized completely coordinated, through the use of appropriate levels of computer and information/communication technologies



What is CIM?l

use of computer hardware, software, and communications networks in all aspects of a manufacturing company including inventory control, quality control, planning, cost accounting, design, and manufacturing (machine control)

What is CIM?utilizes the computer, not only to automate the design, control, assembly, and planning, but to link these processes into an organizational entity l control of information flow and material or product flow to best serve the customerl



What is CIM?l

including information, to best serve the customer; typically incorporating together the following technologies: computer aided manufacturing, computer aided design, computer aided process planning, computer aided quality control, computer aided design

What is CIM?l

concept of a completely automated factory in which all the functions of a company (design methods, production, administration, accounting, marketing, etc.) are integrated and controlled in the company and use common data shared through the same database



What is CIM?consists of three dimensions: l the engineering dimension involves CAD/CAM and CAPP activities; l the networking and systems dimension; l the continuous improvement dimension that encompasses areas such as MRP II, TQM, JIT and theory of constraints (TOC)l

Definition of CIMComputer Integrated Manufacturingis the integration of the total manufacturing enterprise through the use of integrated systems and data communications coupled with new managerial philosophies that improve organizational and personnel efficiency.

Flexible Manufacturing SystemConceptual idea is attributed to David Williamson in the 1960s, but it took development of CNC and programmable controllers to make the concept truly viable.



Flexible Manufacturing SystemA series of automatic machine tools or items of fabrication equipment linked together with an automatic material handling provision for random fabrication of parts or assemblies that fall within predetermined families

Flexible Manufacturing SystemFMS is a group of NC machine tools that can randomly process group of parts, having automated material handling and central computer control to dynamically balance resource utilization so that the system can adapt automatically to changes in parts production mixes, and levels of output. (Kearney and Treaker)



Manufacturing SystemA manufacturing system is a collection of integrated equipment and human resources, whose function is to perform one or more processing and/or assembly operations on a starting raw material, part, or set of parts.
