If industrial automation is not used then the labor is required to perform the same task over and over again, he or she might be able to get skilled in that task and be able to complete the task in a successful manner. If all the labor in the production process relies on the services of one another, then there are also some risks involved in such a production method. If one of the labor is absent on a certain day, then the entire cycle is interrupted and the production might not be able to be completed in a successful manner. This reliance on labor to perform tasks has its advantages but risks too. Even though people might be provided with employment opportunities, but by performing the same task again and again, the person might feel that their skills are up to no good and also they will not be able to excel in any other thin except for the current job that they perform. If that person thus becomes unemployed, he/she will not be able to find any other job until they get sufficient knowledge or skill regarding it. It is for this purpose that Industrial Malaysia now focuses on adoption robotic devices, which can perform repetitive tasks so that the process of operations is completed at a faster rate and also, it is not dependent on labor and hence there is no threat of absenteeism in this case.
Benefits of Industrial automation
Industrial automation is becoming widely applied all over the world. On one hand, there are some serious problems associated with it in terms of the high rate of unemployment that people might have to face if they are replaced by machinery. On the other hand, businesses have started to expand by using automated devices. This shows that there are tremendous growth opportunities for those manufacturing companies that adopt this method of production but the labor that they will replace need also be given job opportunities so that they do not have to starve as a result. The best way to do is to train them for other jobs so that industrial automation does not have any negative impact on the people of any country.
