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.
