Purpose – The actual benefits of the AMT solidarity to the manufacturing system, classified as systemic, will only be acquired and identified if the current design and organizational structure become matchable with the change being introduced. The purpose of this paper is to present a review for the organizational design development related to AMT assumption and the green manufacturing (GM) involved in every aspect of manufacturing processes. The objective factors of decision-making problems are usually two: quality and cost, but as opinion of the GM, environmental impact (E) should also be considered.
Design/methodology/approach – The developed theoretical composition integrates two refined and tested skeletons: the organizational design and the strategic selections of AMT. Qualitative analysis of success factors critical to AMT adoption and implementation has been dealt with extensively in the literature.
Research limitations/implications – The generated framework is theoretical in nature and needs to be tested, although the theoretical exercise integrates tested frameworks.
Practical implications – The understanding of the relationships between the process of AMT authorization and the required changes in the organization contribute to the acquisition of the benefits related to those technologies.
Finally, this paper aims to address this issue, and a brief overview of the development process of AMSs.
