The article argues that the achievement of CIM demands a group technology approach to systems. Common denomination, the author assets, must be found to integrate the work of independent teams. An integration process is described which shows that, as often as possible, common building blocks for each CIM step must be used. Procurement should buy from families of parts, design should be aware of common features and costs, and manufacturing should build logically on these in a modular way, drawing data from a common base.
