Abstract: Process Automation, the strategy of automating the processes to achieve business success is becoming a trend in current industries. Textile manufacturing industry plays a leading role in the Sri Lankan economy and contributes a lot to the country’s development. But recently the Sri Lankan Textile Manufacturing Industry is depicting a downfall where it puts the country’s economy in great danger. Therefore this industry is paid attention on the context of its performance and technology usage. Information on processes before and after automation and the strategy for automation was gathered based on the supply chain. The study was mainly carried out to reveal the significance of the least explored areas of concern and get the awareness of the community. Upon the industry performance, a framework was amended to evaluate the effectiveness of process automation to suit to the Sri Lankan context. An analysis was done for the whole industry based on the sample major players of the industry (Brandix, Hirdaramani and MAS Holdings) about their performance based on Porter’s Value Chain and a detailed discussion about the performance was derived. Through the research outcomes, the major players can identify ways to measure their current performance and improve their effectiveness, and the SMEs can get a better idea on better performance practices and automation strategies to move forward to improve their performance.
