This work has attempted to give a brief overview of the power and benefits of intelligent integrated management systems. ICSs monitor and cover the whole factory from shop floor to boardroom, giving all plant personnel appropriate information and control. The power of the ICS is the ability to recognize and consolidate a whole variety of various process, operational, and management and governmental factors that allow the decision makers in plants to make better or optimal decisions with regard to their production, profitability, and whatever other goals that are important to them. Some of the benefits to ICS are better-informed staff, improved operational control, and better decision making, all of which affect the bottom line of the business to some degree. This includes higher throughput, consistent quality, less down time, and other benefits, such as better training and fast detection of problems, which are not easy to qualify or quantify. In general, the end user cannot operate as efficiently without such systems.
