The role of human resources in the computerized factory


We challenge the appropriateness and feasibility of a wholesale substitution of computerized automation for human resources in the factory of the future. Employees will exert greater influence than ever before because of the complexity, cost and critical role of the equipment with which they work. Tills view is supported through examples of the significance of human inputs in almost every level and function of the automated factory including management, the work force, and staff and service occupations. The truly effective computerized factory will consist of a well balanced interaction of human and technical elements.
