The authors propose a framework for using knowledge-based systems to integrate the heterogeneous multidatabases of computer integrated manufacturing (CIM). For each database, a corresponding knowledge-based system is designed for directing knowledge-processing of shared information. This one-to-one method reduces the complexity of the problem. Specifically, the structure, features, and knowledge representation for a knowledge-based system are presented. Then, a prototype of an interface between manufacturing planning and computer-aided design is described. Due to the potential for rapid changes in the manufacturing environment, the linkages among CIM databases are designed to be dynamic, flexible, and adaptive to a wide variety of situations
