Paper Title:
Utilization of Advanced Manufacturing Technologies in an Indian Manufacturing Enterprise
  Abstract

In the present turbulent times, survival and success of any organization increasingly depends on effective use of resources available in any organization. The present study has been carried out to assess the utilization of new technologies in the manufacturing organization. A feasibility study has been carried out to find out the utilization level of different technologies for strategic success. The study has been conducted by considering the following aspects:- Utilization of different operations with respect to time. Utilization of machines by comparing the costs of automatic machines with conventional machines. It has been observed that the utilization level of all the sections is more than 70% with respect to time. The research has been carried out using flexible systems methodology. SAP-LAP (Situation Actor Process-Learning Action Performance) is a holistic framework that blends hard systems and soft systems paradigms. For this reason, the enterprises aim for improving the utilization level of existing resources.
