Together with the development of computer network technology, the automatic collaboration of CIM data activities is becoming an important research issue. Two models are proposed for the research issue: a data activity flow network model called DAF-Net for coordinating interdependent data activities and an agent-based integration model of information systems called AIMIS for integrating distributed and heterogeneous information systems on demand. Additionally, this paper addresses the key design factors of the DAF-Net and also the AIMIS: the structural type of the DAF-Net and the agent interaction protocol of the AIMIS. Statistical methods and PVM (Parallel Virtual Machine) software are employed for the design of the DAF-Net and the AIMIS.
