At present, Japanese AE/C firms are making R and D efforts in diversified fields. Along with the diversification of R and D, complexity in the management of R and D is also increasing significantly. Due to complexity in the management of R andD, firms are becoming increasingly dependant on information technology for real time information, cost effectiveness and also for reliability of information technology for integration arid coordination of many of the activities. Shimim Corporation, one of the largest A/E/C firm in Japan, is involved in R and D activities in diversified fields and implements information technology 'to integrate and coordinate many of its activities. As the management of R and D and sustaining competitiveness are very important, Shimizu has developed several information systems for the management of RRLD and sustaining competitiveness. This paper introduces Shimizu's perspectives on the implementation of information technology for R and D management and Competitiveness and introduces the information systems developed by Shimizu, specially for R and D management.
