CIMAT is a computer software designed to help users modify, customize and adapt the CIFOR C&I (Criteria and Indicators) generic template and C&I sets of CIFOR industrial plantation, CIFOR community managed foerst, International Tropical Timber Organization, Forest Stewardship Council, African Timber Organization and the Indonesian Ecolabelling Institute to meet local conditions and expectations.

CIMAT also allows its users to develop an entirely new set of C&I from an 'empty' set. CIMAT will assist users by giving suggestions at any stage. Furthermore, CIMAT also provides guidance for assessment of C&I using multicriteria analysis i.e. analytic hierarchy process, ranking and rating. CIMAT can also be treated as a 'learning tool' for those who are merely interested in exploring the C&I knowledge store on it.
