Abstract

An integrating model which, based on a review of the most recent theoretical and empirical studies, offers an overall view of the factors affecting the adoption of Advanced Manufacturing Technologies (AMTs) is presented. The model is intended to be a base for the managers′ analysis of the implementation of AMTs, and enables the four areas affecting adoption (Industry, Firm, Technology and Supply) to be approached in a more integrated way.
