Automation isn’t the only way to minimize repetitive and manual tasks. Many manufacturing organizations are utilizing cutting-edge robotic technology. These programmed robots or robot-controlled machines use artificial intelligence (AI) to improve an outfit’s assembly, material handling, and processing capabilities. When set to work in a predictable environment, robots can handle physically demanding or monotonous jobs that can negatively affect employees, either through injury or morale. The result is a significant increase in productivity and a reduction in labor costs.
