Adoption of management software in a SME.
  This case study discusses the approach taken at a small specialist clothing manufacturer who, due to increasing demand, had to adopt Computer Aided Manufacturing (C.A.M.) techniques to improve their production control information. The development and implementation of a suitable manufacturing information system is discussed and it is shown that the subsequent competitive position of the Company has improved due to the efficient management of information resources. The paper will appraise the current state of the production planning and control systems and information flows to improve the information feedback to the production planner to enhance the flow of orders, sales and delivery and will recommend ways forward. It also encompasses the problems encountered during the implementation phase.
