Advanced manufacturing technologies (AMTs) are often attributed with providing operational benefits, organizational benefits, and improved managerial satisfaction and the more radical the technology the better. This study acts as a counterweight to those studies by suggesting that the achievement of the perceived benefits arising from radical AMT are far from automatic. This study provides evidence that the problems outweigh the benefits associated with radical AMT from the perspective of the operations manager.
