Abstract
Manufacturing companies rely on advanced manufacturing technologies (AMT) in order to increase their competitive position in global markets. Successful implementation of AMT depends greatly on justification tools. The availability of a large amount of tools with varying complexity makes it difficult for managers to choose the most appropriate ones. This study investigates application of various justification tools for different levels of AMT integration. The results are presented in a framework for AMT justification tools selection that could be used by managers. The research also suggests further research directions.
