The Digital Factory Department has been engaged in the research on the basic theories and applications of digitalization and intelligent manufacturing technology. It is one of the earliest technical teams committing to research, development and deployment of Computer Integrated Manufacturing Systems (CIMS) in China. The main research fields are management, process, control and integration of the digital intelligent manufacture. It has ,made great achievements in the theory and method of production operation management research, the digital factory (workshop) plan and design, the manufacturing execution system(MES) technology, the advanced digital control technology, the advanced plan and schedule, the manufacturing process modeling, the simulation and performance evaluation, the quality of products and equipment fault diagnosis technology . It has developed special technology, industry solutions and products in the MES platform, the MES application software, the intelligent data processing platform, the perceived control and industrial mobile application, and has won sound reputation both at home and aboard in the areas of automobile, tobacco, Non-ferrous metallurgy, military and semiconductor industry, etc.. Meanwhile, The CIMS System Integration Technology Laboratory of the National High-Tech Program (863 program) and Manufacture Information Engineering (MIE) Centre of Liaoning Province were established in the department.

The department has built up close academic exchange and long-term cooperative relationships with universities and institutes from US, Germany, Australia, and Hong Kong SAR. The department also establishes sound cooperative relationships with oversea enterprises in the area of technical, development, application and marketing, having cooperated and has established Manufacturing Execution System Technology Laboratory with GE Company. In recent 5 years, more than 60 projects have been accomplished including National Key Projects, National Natural Science Foundation of China, the National High-Tech R&D Program (863 Program), National Key Technology Program, Knowledge Innovation Project of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, cooperation projects between CAS and local governments, provincial and municipal science and technology plan projects, and enterprise-entrusted projects, etc.. Furthermore, more than 40 patents and software copyrights have been registered.
