Automation and Robotics

  • Anderson Ashburn


Many plants make use of some type of automation today, either in one of the early mechanical forms or the more recent electronic forms. Because of the rise in foreign competition and the belief that a major reason for this is that increases in productivity have not been as consistent in recent years as they had been in the past, there is likely to be an increased use of automation in the next few years. One special form of automation, the use of robots, is attracting particular attention in the early 1980s.
