A methodology for using CIM for process improvement is presented. The technique places particular emphasis on reducing machine downtime and improving product quality. The authors present a tool that allows management to allocate resources to CIM projects most effectively in order to achieve maximum results with limited resources. Two applications of the CIM technology are presented. The major results of reduced machine downtime and reduced process waste are discussed. The methodology presented is based on a top-down strategic vision and a bottom-up tactical implementation. It is structured along three dimensions: collection of data from the production line, improvement of the production process using that data, and distribution of that data to benefit all affected parties. It helps to give the CIM team direction as it addresses the complexities of transforming the corporate CIM vision into a production-floor reality
