The integration of heterogeneous systems in a CIM framework is discussed, both from the information integration and control architecture points of view. An Express - based Information Management System is presented as a kernel for integration of distributed heterogeneous systems in CIM. Concepts and instances shared by the integrated CIM components as well as administrative or control information is included in the Information System architecture. Current approach to develop a control architecture on top of the Information Management System and Integrating Infrastructure is presented. A discussion of the experimental results, weaknesses and benefits of our current implementation and limitations of the Express language is made in the framework of a prototype developed in the Esprit Project CIM-PLATO.
