The first objective of this project is to develop, validate, publish and disseminate a primary set of functional specifications for CIM Open Systems Architecture (CIM-OSA). This set will contain sufficient detail to serve as a foundation on which products could be developed, as well as enabling user operations to be structured according to CIM-OSA concepts and rules.
The architecture description 1.0 is a step in the computer integrated manufacturing (CIM) open system architecture (OSA) definition. It is used to promote the CIM-OSA architecture within the standardisation bodies and by end users and designers to describe the current state of existing CIM applications and to implement future realisations.

This research describes a modelling method and language for process models during the system life cycle. Open system architecture for computer integrated manufacturing (CIM-OSA) supports model engineering and model execution for operation monitoring and operation control.

This CIM-OSA primary release will encompass the features essential for the support of enterprise-wide information use. The migration of existing applications will also be supported, and users will be able to implement CIM-OSA-based information systems. Validation of this primary set of functional specifications will be achieved through the use of prototypes and via the real operation of the relevant parts of CIM-OSA. Emphasis will be on business integration in the areas of product development, product planning and manufacturing. The integrating infrastructure will build on and use the upper layers of the ISO's OSI model.
The promotion of CIM-OSA in standardisation will be undertaken. Standards proposals based upon CIM-OSA modelling and integrated infrastructure frameworks will also be submitted to the relevant organisations.
The promotional aspects that began in the foundation project 688 (AMICE) will be continued and expanded.
This project builds on ESPRIT projects 688 (AMICE) and 2422 (AMICE II/P).
