Abstract:The revolution in information technology and the changes in political and social environments during the last two decades have created a very competitive global market. In order to remain competitive, business organizations have focused on innovative techniques for product and process designs. Owing to limited resources, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) need to work harder than large corporations in order to survive in a situation of ever-increasing competition. Considering the importance of elements of computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM), a framework for the implementation of CIM in SMEs has been developed with the help of a survey conducted in a randomly selected group of 24 SMEs. Also highlights the issues of human resource in the implementation of CIM in SMEs. Finally, presents future research directions.
