Organisational problems and issues of CIM systems design

Krzysztof Santarek


The need for intraorganisational integration has arisen from the necessity of better co-ordination of complex tasks and processes, which result from the increasing specialisation of work and the partitioning of an organisation. There are several forms and tools of integration. The paper concerns technical integration using information technologies (CIM). Its goal is better co-ordination of tasks and, therefore, provision of higher flexibility, lead time shortening, production costs reduction and quality improvement. Design and implementation of CIM is, therefore, not only a technical problem, but, above all, an organisational one, which has strategic impact on the enterprise. The paper will discuss some organisational problems of CIM design and implementation.
