Abstract: The links between manufacturing and marketing strategies in industrial organizations have received relatively little attention. The need to re-assess the nature of this link is considered in this paper in the context of advanced manufacturing technologies (AMT). The necessity of re-examining marketing strategies when investments in AMT are made is indicated, and the problems of ensuring that the benefits of AMT are not dissipated within an organization|s own structure are also discussed.

Keywords: advanced manufacturing technology; AMT; marketing strategies.
