This paper describes the development of specifications for a management information system (MIS) suitable for a typical fabrication company in the constructional steelwork sector. The developments were undertaken by the Construction Management Group at the University of Leeds as part of the manufacture and construction activities of the CIMsteel project. The paper specifications have also assisted the development of expansions to preexisting MIS software developed by GoData as used by many fabrication companies in the UK and other countries. The paper also describes the extension of these initial investigations to the business processes within and around a fabricator and to considerations of overall improvements of process and ultimately to possible future scenarios for the whole constructional steelwork sector. Dipl. Ing. D. Mitrovic, Professor S.P. Male, A.J. Steel and I. Hunter

CIMSteel (Computer Integrated Manufacturing in Constructional Steelwork) - Delivering the Promise

Recognising the need to improve the competitiveness of the European constructional steelwork industry led to the initiation, in 1987, of the CIMsteel project. The project vision was to transform this industry sector into a world-class integrated manufacturing process leading to improved and economic steelwork structures. This phase of the project, which is due to finish in 1998, has involved over 70 collaborating organisations in nine European countries. F.K. Garas and I. Hunter
