Aim of the project

CIMA was a 4th Framework ESPRIT project. The CIMA project consisted of two interlinked activities:

This second activity, was called trial project. Its objective was to develop, test and disseminate a methodology to support continuous improvement (CI) and knowledge transfer in new product development (NPD).
