CIM-NEGEV a computer integrated manufacturing teaching environment

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


This paper presents CIM-NEGEV-an in-house developed computer integrated manufacturing environment especially suited for higher education needs and" hands-on" teaching of CIM methodologies. CIM-NEGEV is open, modular and robust with a decentralized control scheme employing state-of-the-art control methodologies and integration tools. The main components of CIM-NEGEV include: workstation managers, production processes, a central database in which all the production information is maintained, and an automatic guided vehicle system for material transfer. Additional capabilities include on-line process monitoring and simulation modules enabling partial operation. CIM-NEGEV is used for control of four robotic manufacturing stations. During its two year operation CIM-NEGEV hosted several system level projects
