Automatic systems are used to varying extent within the manufacturing industry. The challenge is to find the most advantageous applications of automation to the manufacturing system over time. Enquiries concerning automation appear when configuring or re-configuring the manufacturing system. The objective of this paper is to describe and to evaluate existing methods that can be used as decision support when deciding on automation. A participating study was conducted within an automation project. The work procedures within the industry are often based on experience and not on systematic methods. Outgoing from these methods and industrial experience a frame work for a new method is suggested. Issues that are critical to a uselful and applicable decision method are pinpointed and discussed.
