Advanced Engineering Economics
Today's highly competitive and dynamic environment drives the manufacturers to the adoption of the advanced manufacturing technologies, so as to face the global challenge. Thus, the question for the manufacturers becomes; "which AMT investment to make?", which can only be decided after pursuing a careful analysis of the alternatives. The purpose of this paper is to provide a review of the economic analysis and justification techniques, which are gathered from the related literature, for the evaluation of the Advanced Manufacturing Technology (AMT) investments. Also a case study is analyzed as a part of this study, and the results drawn out of this examination are presented in conjunction with the discussions taking place in the other related literature.
