Over the past few decades, manufacturing has evolved from a more labor-intensive set of mechanical processes to a sophisticated
set of information based technology processes. With the existence of various advanced manufacturing technologies (AMTs), more
and more functions or jobs are performed by these machines instead of human labour. This study was undertaken in order to
research the extent of AMTs adoption in manufacturing companies in Kenya. In order to investigate a survey was conducted via
questionnaires that were sent to 183 selected AMT manufacturing companies in Kenya. 92 companies responded positively. All
the surveyed companies were found to have a measure of investment in at least two of the 14 types of AMTs investigated. In
general the company surveyed showed that the level of AMT adoption in Kenya is very low with investments levels at a mean of
2.057 and integration levels at a mean of 1.639 in a scale of 1-5.
