Better accuracy. Robots themselves are 100% accurate. Auditing robotic automation can also be applied to work performed by other staff to ensure accuracy, consistency and compliance to regulations. The Robots themselves also provide a complete audit train of all of their activities and provide reporting capability for audit and process analysis purposes. This improved accuracy also eliminates the need for quality checking and rework, further reducing costs and improving service levels.
If a job seeker conducts some job research of the manufacturing industry, he will find that U.S. manufacturing employers are seeking job candidates with skills in four areas:
In most countries, especially in the developing nations, there are some hidden costs that a foreign investor comes to find about once he has already established his company. For instance, in Asia and Africa it is commonplace for investors to bribe, give kickbacks or even pay protection fee to facilitate services and shield their investments. This normally pushes operating costs up thus making offshore manufacturing unviable.
The robotic addition can be of great benefit to companies that requires applying custom product labels in large quantity in product lines. This addition will reduce all the man hours wasted by employees’ hand applying labels at slow speed than an applicator can apply them. This allows employers to use their staff for more important tasks and offers efficient production speed.
Easier to work with. Robotic automation is much easier to work with than humans. Robots don’t require coaching or ongoing training. Once one Robot is trained to do the work, all other robots immediately learn the same things. Robots don’t require the same supervision as humans and can work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, without a break.
