Manufacturing in the context of industry 4.0 has become increas-ingly complex. As the complexity of these systems increases, so to will the potential for emerging hazards. Consequently, finding an appropriate ap-proach to identify, measure and assess new and emerging hazards is im-perative to prevent their occurrence or lessen their effects on the human, organizational, and technical scales. FRAM and STAMP applications are two known methods for analyzing risks in complex systems. This study con-ducts a critical review of the literature on FRAM and STAMP specifically with regards to their application in the manufacturing sector. For this purpose, scientific databases such as IEEE, Compendex and INSPEC, Science Di-rect, Google Scholar, and Espace ÉTS were consulted for relevant studies from 2004 to 2020, mostly in English. The search keywords included FRAM, STAMP, STPA, manufacturing, risk, industry, and industry 4.0. The results are presented in two tables including the year of publication, the study's aim and results, the type of analyzed risks, and applied methods. Despite the limited number of studies that have applied FRAM or STAMP in manufac-turing, the results show that they are suitable for understanding, explaining, and analyzing complex manufacturing systems. They can offer a different perspective on the analysis of the system. However, to the best of our knowledge, their application in manufacturing in the context of industry 4.0, particularly with regards to the use of wearable technologies in manufactur-ing, has not yet been studied. The results of this review conclude that the use of FRAM and STAMP in manufacturing could be promising for the anal-ysis of digital manufacturing risks, especially wearable technologies used in manufacturing, a point which needs further consideration in future studies.
