Careful planning and organization have been responsible for the outstanding record of effectiveness, acceptance and safety of robot installations in the United States. Any firm which is considering installing a robot should be aware of the commitment which is associated with this effort. The robot user also has a responsibility to the entire industrial community and to the advancement of the robotics field. Through a conscientious effort by American management, industrial robots have achieved a reputation for not causing workers to lose jobs, being safe in operation, and assisting our nation to improve productivity. Every manager and engineer involved in a robotics program has a responsibility to maintain these goals of robot performance.
