Abstract

This paper explores the growing role of shop floor systems in overall information systems strategy and how the Knowledge Transfer Partnership scheme was used to implement an integrated suite of shop floor systems in a major aerospace company. It also focuses on the significant process change that accompanied the introduction of new systems and the benefits this has brought to a company that has to meet large scale orders for aero engine components sometimes placed several years in advance. The paper also illustrates how shop floor engineering systems can be integrated with mainstream corporate systems.
