Technology, allied in automation processes
The correct implementation of technology, more specifically the automation or digitization of processes in your company, should be the product of a detailed effort by all to achieve a change of mindset, and a creative attitude at all levels of your company or organization
Automation also results in experiencing new technology; improving the conditions of your work team, suppressing difficult jobs and increasing safety
To understand automation it is necessary to know its origins, since, this event mark the end of the way a civilization or a society operates and ushered in a new era in technology, adding artificial intelligence to its processes.
The first computer machine mankind knew was at the hands of the Frenchman Joseph Marie Charles (7 July 1752 – 7 August 1834), known as Joseph Marie Jacquard, who built the so-called Jacquard loom, the first programmable loom, the method of its loom, became the paradigm of the first automated machine, from that invention more and more intelligent machines were developed that controlled and monitored processes , this with a defined objective, ensure as many products as possible, in order to reduce costs, reduce risks and guarantee uniformity in quality.
Today we see in mind automation in the daily life, from something as minimal as the way phones are used, to the optimization and improvement of the operation of an industrial plant, automation in a stadium, a farm, the infrastructure of cities among other processes.
Example: Machined assembly lines, large-scale production
Fixed Automation is aimed at companies or companies, where their priority is quantity, that is, large quantities, since their products have the characteristic of high demand and volume index. This type of production process has a high cost and it must be taken into account that its life cycle is the same as that of the product being manufactured.
Example: Industrial robots, numerical control, among others
Programmable Automation is aimed at companies or companies, where their products have low demand rate and great diversity of products. In this case the production processes are designed to be able to adapt to the variants of the different types of products that are manufactured. These adaptations are made by means of programming (software).
Flexible Automation is aimed at companies or companies, where their production processes have an average demand rate. These systems combine both fixed and programmed automation elements. They are usually made up of different workstations interconnected with each other and controlled by a computer.
WHAT AUTOMATION IN A PRODUCTION PROCESS?
Some of the sectors that use such automation are manufacturing, robotics and vehicle control
An automation system, is a system where production processes usually carried out by human operators are transferred to a set of technological elements, this is the conjugation of operational command, so it can be said that, some of the sectors that use such automation are those of manufacturing, robotics and vehicle control.
It is also present in the world of technology: in IT or IT systems and in software systems for business processes and is right at this last point where it decants our position, since intelligent automation must be part of your company or organization’s well-defined digital transformation initiative for each production process , since it is no secret to anyone that prolongation in time and space depends on both nascent and existing companies.
It is then at this point that you, who are in charge or whose responsibility lies with making sound decisions that compromise not only the jobs but also the economy and future of the company or organization, the economy of employees and their families must be questioned:
Where is your company or organization on the journey to digital transformation?
Does your company or organization meet the current demands of digital transformation?
Is your company or organization part of the digital transformation, or are you simply seeing it from the barrier?
Where do you see your company or organization in five years?
It is proven that the advantages of digital transformation in today’s companies translate into:
- Competitiveness at all level compared to other business organizations
- Indisputably your staff will be highly qualified
- agility in processes
- Better customer experience
- Effective in circumstances of mode and place time, this is durability over time
- Better productivity
Automation also results in experimenting with technology; improvement in the working conditions of the staff by suppressing difficult work and increasing safety, performing operations impossible to control intellectually or manually, optimizing the availability of products, providing the necessary quantities at the right time.
DON'T FORGET THAT BIG CHANGES IN TECHNOLOGY BRING WITH THEM BIG CHALLENGES
Automating or digitizing production processes in your company should be the product of a detailed effort to achieve the right and ideal technology change for your company or organization...
... this must be accompanied by a clear strategy in technology changes in its production processes, which allow it to bring from the intangible world the most appropriate reality to your company and this certainly requires a great ally that with its expertise manages to channel the needs of not only the economic activity developed, but also that its staff is up to those changes.
From the above we conclude that, automation in simple terms is: the application of various technologies to control and monitor a process. It could then be understood that industrial automation not only refers to production processes, but can intervene in the operation of any type of property, process and economic activity among others.
Basically what automation is looking for is to simplify production processes.
It reduces human mediation, getting a record of events and of course reducing costs. This is achieved thanks to the main advantage of the solutions offered by understanding and applying automation in time, since it helps companies achieve digital transformation.
Today’s organizations face the great challenge of supporting their employees and allies, reaching new customers, providing new and innovative products and services, faster and reinventing themselves so as not to get carried away with the path chosen by large companies that today only exist in the memory of a few.
