”Re-inventing manufacturing” almost sounds like the mission statement of a Technocrat or Futurist looking to capture the utopian dream. Indeed, but why can’t we? After all, Henry Ford’s assembly line is a pretty old concept. Yes, certainly we have made incremental advances and yet, what about the proverbial ”OMG” revolutionary innovations, and ”leap-frogging” type paradigms shifts in the manufacturing sector? I guess we are still waiting for those aren’t we? We don’t have Star Trek assimilation machines yet, I suppose someday we will, and I hope the US is the nation to bring such dreams to fruition.
Every day more and more users join the Internet and become familiar with the huge profits which can be made on the foreign exchange market. But trading the FX market is very complex and you will need years of experience to get your first profits. I’m not saying that you could make some money in your first trades, but these profits will be based more on luck than on pure foreign exchange knowledge. A trading robot will give you parts of the knowledge of an experienced trader in an automated software.
”So robots will have to take on a bigger role in the assembly line. Many of those robots deployed on Chinese factory floors will be foreign-made though, according to Reuters. Despite government efforts to push the country’s robotics industry forward, foreign robot manufacturers still have a significant lead in the market for manufacturing robots in China. Foreign companies built 41,000 of the 56,000 industrial robots currently deployed in China, according to statistics from the International Federation of Robotics cited by Reuters.”
Why was she giving this talk? Simple; we beat the German’s in WWII due to our manufacturing abilities. Today, China can easily out produce us, so are we going to make the same mistake as the Germans did in WWII, in a future war with an industrial power that can out produce us? Well, are we? How can you say the answer is yes or no; you can’t and that’s one more reason manufacturing is so vital to US interests, on top of the importance of jobs, trade flows, and GDP growth. ”A nation lives well, when it produces well,” she reminds us, and quoted Adam Smith’s warning about not relying on military resources to make our defense systems.
Robots are also more reliable and secure than humans. They do exactly what they are instructed to do and nothing more. A central control person can manage up to 30 Robots, each performing the work of between 2 to 4 staff. This significantly reduces management costs and improves capacity planning accuracy.
