Lee, Howard D.
This document reports on a workshop conducted to bring together vocational, technical, and adult education colleges and the University of Wisconsin-Stout staff members who are working with computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM).

They also worked on articulation with high schools in the area. Following a brief summary of the workshop, the document contains outlines, agendas, handouts, participant lists, a CIM strategic plan, slide script about CIM at John Deere, summaries of CIM project development at seven Wisconsin technical colleges and the University of Wisconsin-Stout, a paper titled "Articulation: The Key to Educational Transition for Students" (J.
