This paper records the research on human resources development associated with integrated manufacturing. The research is based on a survey in 18 countries. It is found that only parts of the human resources factors are significantly related to the level of computerised integration. It is also found that the level of integration and the development of human resources vary from country to country. However, the difference in human resources development is bigger than the differences in the level of integration. The country context may be another source for explaining the development of human resources. Future research on revealing the forces driving human resources development is suggested.
