The idea of "digital manufacturing" was prominent the 1980s, when computer-integrated manufacturing was developed and promoted by machine tool manufacturers, the Computer Automated Systems Associated and Society of Manufacturing Engineering(CASA/SME). Computer Integrated Manufacturing CIM is an example of the implementation of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in manufacturing. There are two main topics in CIM. They are complete automation of a manufacturing & production control systems. The subsystems in computer aided manufacturing involves CAD, CAE, CAM, CAPP CAQ, PPC , and business system integrated by a common database, which would be run with the intervention of human. The technologies, which cover the system as a whole may be FMS, (flexible manufacturing system), ASRS (automated storage and retrieval system), AGV (automated guided vehicle), Robotics, Automated conveyance systems and Lean manufacturing.
