  • QUANTITATIVE BENEFIT
  • USE CASES
  • Manufacturing System Automation
    An automated manufacturing system is the total integration of software and machinery used to create a system that performs manufacturing processes autonomously through computer programming.Without automated manufacturing systems, factory output would be vastly reduced, production would be very time consuming, working conditions would be less safe and quality control would be extremely difficult. Employees would need to work twice as hard to achieve in a day what they can now achieve in an hour with automated industrial systems.
