The paper describes progress in research and applications in the Chinese CIMS program. For CIMS R&D, the research is application-oriented and the results guide the development of further applications. CIMS applications in China emphasize two aspects. First, CIMS projects are not only technology applications, but are a combination of technology and management related to enterprise reform and business process re-engineering. Second, they are not individual information technology applications, but an integrated application of information technology for the entire system. After describing some test-case at CIMS reference sites, the experience and principles used to guide successful implementation are discussed.
