Abstract : A recent survey of a representative sample of manufacturing firms was undertaken to provide current information on the adoption of advanced technology and methods usd for adapting workers to technological change. This paper describes results of the survey in terms of four issues: extent and nature of adoption of computer-automated equipment, extent and nature of industrial activities to train workers for adapting to technological change, relationships between automation and training, and organizational and environmental factors related to automation and training. Implications of the results for policymakers and students of technological innovation are discussed. (Author)
