Changing market influences force more and more companies to use new promissing strategies such as Computer Integrated Manufacturing. In this connection the integration of technology, organisation and personnel comes in the centre of interest. The increasing importance of personnel in the field of CIM leads to an intensified attention concerning the training of employees, students and pupils.

In the first part of this article the importance of CIM and the need for new qualifications is addressed. Subsequently a systematization of CIM-laboratories from a technical point of view is proposed. The contribution closes with a description of selected CIM-laboratories and final conclusions.
