A Study of Computer Aided Production Management in UK Batch Manufacturing This monograph examines research needs in computer aided production management CAPM. Recommendations for future research and its organisation are made. The monograph is based on an indepth study of current CAPM practice in a varied sample of 33 companies. The study conclusions confirm many existing beliefs. Many companies are paying inadequate attention to the necessary prerequisites for successful CAPM implementation. The prerequisites change as the extent of CAPM system integration increases. Organisational rather than implementation issues dominate as integration increases. The proposed research would bring together existing knowledge of best CAPM practice to form methodologies for the audit, design and implementation of CAPM systems. The aim is to reduce the timespan of the learning curve required for successful CAPM integration.

Abstract

This monograph examines research needs in computer aided production management CAPM. Recommendations for future research and its organisation are made. The monograph is based on an indepth study of current CAPM practice in a varied sample of 33 companies. The study conclusions confirm many existing beliefs. Many companies are paying inadequate attention to the necessary prerequisites for successful CAPM implementation. The prerequisites change as the extent of CAPM system integration increases. Organisational rather than implementation issues dominate as integration increases. The proposed research would bring together existing knowledge of best CAPM practice to form methodologies for the audit, design and implementation of CAPM systems. The aim is to reduce the timespan of the learning curve required for successful CAPM integration. The methodologies need to be specific to particular industrial sectors.
