Abstract—In this paper, the review of various disruptive technologies in an advance-manufacturing environment was studied. Few of the various applications where robots and other emerging technologies have been effectively used in the manufacturing environment were discussed. The replacement of some traditional process of manufacturing with the new disruptive technologies has highly improved manufacturing outputs. A few of the technologies that have an impact in advance manufacturing environment include; the use of computer-based technology in manufacturing, the application of internet in various aspects of manufacturing, the use of robotics to automate or augment human services during the manufacturing process. The various progress made by this technology towards the growth of industries forms part of this review paper.
