Advanced Manufacturing Technologies (AMTs), Extent of Use, Indian Industry


In today’s highly dynamic and rapidly changing environment, manufacturing scenario has undergone a rapid change in the last two decades, more so in the last few years. The manufacturing units are continuously trying to update themselves by acquiring or developing new technologies. The objective of this paper is to find out the extent of use of various advanced manufacturing technologies in northern part of India’s mechanical manufacturing industry. It was found that CAD and NC/CNC/DNC machines are being used widely in design and fabrication related advanced manufacturing technologies respectively.
