Abstract
Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) play an important role in the national economy. Since manufacturing has become global, the competition is high among manufacturing/service industries to provide quality goods and services at competitive prices. Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) is a generic term for a group of manufacturing technologies that combine both scope and scale capabilities that are making fundamental changes to manufacturing industry. The enablers of CIM play an important role in the implementation of CIM by SMEs to compete in the global market. Considering the importance of enablers of the successful implementation of CIM, the critical success factors for the implementation of CIM in SMEs have been identified with the help of an empirical study conducted with British SMEs.
