Abstract: The main research objective is to determine the impact that technology incorporation has created in the efficiency and productivity of manufacturing companies in Cartagena de Indias (Colombia) in recent years. The investigation begins with an extensive bibliographic research that reflects the trend and analyzes the current state of the art of technology incorporation from a global point of view, passing through Latin America and finishing in Cartagena de Indias. Having determined that ¿state of the art" and in thinking to meet the objective, a survey is structured and applied in a representative sample of the manufacturing industry of The City. The results of the survey included both quantitative and qualitative data. The next step consisted in the conceptualization and the subsequent implementation of analytical methods for both cases. Methodological triangulation became the cornerstone for managing the process of comprehensive analysis. The qualitative part of the analysis was complemented by the incorporation of specific mathematical techniques such as Multiple Linear Regression Analysis and Data Envelopment Analysis. The combination of these techniques led to similar conclusions that supported the adequacy of the proposed method. Additionally, it helped to establish the variables that in one or another way produce more impact on this increase in efficiency / productivity. To complete the investigation and on the basis of the results of the qualitative and quantitative analysis the conclusions set out a series of recommendations and mechanisms of technological appropriation contextualized for Cartagena de Indias. These allow for the immediate future that technological appropriation be more successful in terms of increased productivity and industrial efficiency.
