AN INTEGRATIVE FRAMEWORK FOR FACTORS IMPACTING AMT IMPLEMENTATION
【摘要】：正Advanced manufacturing technology (AMT) provides tremendous advantages and challenges for organizations. However, the mere implementation of AMT does not guarantee that an organization can reap all of AMT's potential benefits. Although many researchers were devoted to exploring the factors that impact the success of AMT implementation, existing literatures do not capture the integrative factors impacting AMT implementation. This paper integrates previous studies of AMT implementation and proposes an integrative framework for factors impacting AMT implementation. We identify such factors from various studies relating to operation strategy, organizational culture, organizational structure, implementation practices, and strategic consensus. Finally, we present all the factors within an integrated framework and propose how these factors impact AMT implementation.
