The research was carried out to identify the links between the introduction of computer integrated manufacturing (CIM) and corporate strategy. The study took place in an organization which manufactures car components and is the subsidiary of a major UK company. At the operational level there was considerable confusion about the objectives of CIM and consequently it had been poorly utilized. A number of suggestions were made to ensure more effective use of CIM. However, as a result of political factors within the organization there was a shift in emphasis from CIM to strategic sourcing.
