Examines the adoption and strategic use of advanced manufacturing technologies (AMTs) by small manufacturing firms. Three major issues are explored: the differences between exporting and non-exporting firms with regard to why they adopt AMT; the differences between exporting and non-exporting firms with regard to how they adopt AMT; and the relationship between adopting AMT and exporting to global markets. Using multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA), multiple comparison tests, pair-wise comparisons, regression, correlation, and partial correlation analysis, the authors found that: exporting and non-exporting firms adopt AMT for different reasons; exporting and non-exporting firms adopt AMT in different ways; and there is a significant positive relationship between adopting AMT and exporting to global markets.
