Computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM), technologies are presented as solutions to manufacturing organizations, which need to perform well in all customer-related dimensions simultaneously. In the literature, CIM technologies providing such benefits as more frequent production changes, reduced inventory level, improved ability of producing complex parts with a high degree of accuracy and repeatability, considerable savings in scrap and rework, lower manufacturing lead-times. In this paper a general model and architecture of CIM for Irankhodro auto industry is designed. Also for each function or subsystem a model is design in CIM environment. The Model has three rings. First ring including three sections: data management, data representation and communication. Second ring is decision support system (DSS) including three sections: DSS for design, DSS for manufacturing and DSS for management. Third ring including all functional area including marketing, design, process planning, manufacturing, production planning and control, quality control, warehouse, management, Finance etc. Also For design of CIM system seven levels is considered including: at business level, at facility level, at shop floor level, at cell level, at workstation level, at machine level, at sensor level. Also CIM model of Iran is based on the seven layers of standard namely open system interconnection (OSI) defined by ISO. IranKhodro auto industry briefly introduce and its barrier and problem for implementation of CIM is discussed. The main objective of this paper is design of a CIM for Irankhodro Automotive Industry in Iran.
