Abstract

This paper presents a reference position on the relation between manufacturing systems and work organisation strategies, It raises some issues and advances a methodological framework in the development of information/manufacturing systems and work organisation design methods. as to reach a balanced influence of the technology, organisation and people aspects in Complex Manufacturing Environments (CME). In this sense it is not presenting research results but, with the underlying goal of implementing a laboratory environment for the study of technical and or organisational developmental aspects of CMEs, there are overviewed the R&D requirements for an interdisciplinary approach involving Computer and Social Sciences. The main scientific areas analysed are Enterprise Integration and Work Organisation, focusing on the methodological aspects of each one.
