Abstract

The current goal of many US firms is to become the highest qualityand lowest cost leaders in their markets. Achieving this goal requiresmajor changes in how products and services are produced. Many systemshave been developed to assist firms in accomplishing this goal theyinclude such diverse areas as JustinTime manufacturing JIT, MaterialResource Planning II MRP II, Automatic Storage and Retrieval SystemsASRS, Electronic Data Interchange EDI, CADCAM, Computer IntegratedManufacturing CIM, and Flexible Manufacturing Systems FMS. One keyelement in the success of these systems is that accurate data concerningplant operations must be immediately available to those who need it.More and more frequently, this requirement is being addressed throughthe use of automatic data collection systems ADC. Seeks to provideinsights into the application of ADC systems in US industries. Considersthe type of data collection system installed, the implementation andoperational problems encountered, and the degree of success enjoyed bythe firm using ADC. Data were gathered via a survey instrumentadministered to the membership of a national organization, the Instituteof Certified Professional Managers ICPM.
