Abstract

Rapid growth of computer technology gives more advantage to manufacturing industries
in order to improve and enhance their process and productivity. Computer technology is
an integral element of Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) concept. CIM is a
production based information technology solutions, which are developed to assist
manufacturing industries in terms of production process and quality control. CIM helps
the medium industries to solve their production related problems. This research briefly
discussed about the factors that influence the medium size manufacturing industries from
not implementing the CIM. There are three factors that influence the medium size
manufacturing from not implementing the CIM which consists of hindrances related to
management factor, people factor, and technological and infrastructure. Hindrances
related to management factors are expensive, few successes, not the right time, lack of
knowledge and confuse with CIM. Hindrances related to people factor include the
changes in work practices and fear of loss authority control. Besides that, this research
also provides the benefits of CIM implementation in medium industries. Benefits from
the implementation of CIM are increase business performance, increase profit, improve
production management, save time motivate employees and reduce cost. Perhaps this
research will give an awareness of CIM and guideline medium industries in order to
implement CIM in their company
