This research is about the identifying the factors that drives the manufacturing organizations in Pakistan towards technology upgradation. There are many factors that involve or influence the organizations in their technology upgradation or adoption decisions. Those factors are of organizational factors, production factors, cost factors and IT factors. First we have given the brief introduction of the topic that contains all the background and definition of the factors, their history and then identified the problem statement. After that we mentioned all research work that already had been done by different researchers. That literature helps to define the area of our problem and provide secondary data for or research. After that we defined the method, resources and whole design of the research by which we conducted this research. In the next phase we analyzed all the data, applied tests for hypotheses and explained all the results that come from this research and interpreted those results. The last phase is of findings and conclusion of the research, in which I explained the outcomes of the research and identified the factors that involved in technology upgradation or adoption process. The last part of the report findings explains the factors and give the findings about accepted or rejected hypotheses.
