The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the enablers for improving the utilization level of advanced manufacturing technologies (AMTs) in Indian manufacturing industry.
In this paper, a large number of manufacturing organizations have been extensively surveyed, to ascertain the contributions made by success factors of AMTs towards realizing manufacturing performance improvements. The correlations between enablers of AMTs' utilization and manufacturing performance parameters have been evaluated and validated by employing various statistical tools.
The paper focuses upon significant contributions of AMTs' success factors namely: education and training of employees; interdisciplinary team formation; rewards and recognition to employees; and industry‐institute interaction, towards affecting improvements in manufacturing performance in Indian industry. The inter‐relationships between various AMTs' utilization success factors with the manufacturing performance parameters have been evaluated.
The study has been conducted only in Northern Indian manufacturing organizations.
The paper highlights the strong potential for enablers of AMTs' utilization in improving organizational performance parameters.
