CCiMe About Us
The mission of the Center for Computer Integrated Manufacturing Enterprises is to make fundamental contributions to the science base for modeling, analysis, design, operation, integration and continuous improvement of manufacturing enterprises.
The Center for Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CCIM) was established at
In 1989, the
In 1994, the founder of the Center, Dr. Joe Mize, retired. The leadership of the center was assigned to Dr. Manjunath Kamath, Center Director and Dr. David Pratt, OCIDM Principal Investigator. Dr. Kamath and Dr.Pratt also served as co-principal investigators on two NSF grants, and both have been involved in the Center activities since 1989.
Beginning in 1993, the research conducted at the Center for CIM started to receive funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF). From 1993 to 2002, 5 different NSF Grants have supported research and curriculum development activities in the areas of advanced modeling environments for manufacturing systems, integrated production management systems, queueing theory, and enterprise process modeling.
In 2001, NSF funded a multi-university I/UCRC called The Center for Engineering Logistics and Distribution (CELDi) with
Since the late 1990s, the scope of the research conducted at the Center for CIM has expanded to include enterprise-level problems and issues. To better represent the current focus of the center research activities, the center is now called “The Center for Computer Integrated Manufacturing Enterprises (CCiMe)”.
