Since the contemporary integrated manufacturing system (CIMS) which is designed according to the conventional five layer Purdue model architecture separates control process and management process virtually, it leads to high production cost and low ore recovery ratio for the complicated process of ore dressing, this paper presents a systematic approach to develop the CIMS based on the three-layer enterprise resource planning (ERP)/manufacturing executive system (MES)/process control system (PCS) architecture for the ore dressing plant. The effective and efficient real time supervision techniques of production statistics & analysis, material current, production cost, equipments and quality are proposed to integrate control process and management process. The successful implementation of ore dressing plant CIMS of JiuQuan steel Company in China confirms the viability and effectiveness of the approach.
