The integration of process and production planning plays an important role in the commitment of Computer Integrated Manufacture (CIM) missions. Various research approaches have been proposed in the last decade. Due to the complexity involved in both process planning and production scheduling, this integration task remains far from being resolved. Based on reviewing previous research, this paper has developed a taxonomy for the integrated planning problem. The most urgent task at this stage is to develop an architectural model which can be further implemented in real world manufacturing systems. An object-oriented modeling technique is therefore employed to build the integration model, so that maximum flexibility and extensibility of the integration system can be obtained for different applications.
