We’re in the automation business. If we had our way, we’d automate everything, so we could streamline efficiency, boost productivity, and make life easier for everyone.

We’re not alone in this – take a look around, and you will see almost every industry taking steps to achieve better output. What makes us different? Automation. Our processes, systems and products save time, money and headaches. There’s no denying it.

 

Some businesses still seem reluctant to jump on the automation bandwagon.

We can see why that may be – the fear factor looms large when presented with start-up costs – but the key here is to focus on the endgame, and on just how much installing automated processes can produce a significant return on investment.

 

If your manufacturing business is employing low skilled workers to complete repetitive tasks, we’re betting that you are experiencing ongoing HR related nightmares. The cycle of recruiting, training,  facilitating and interacting with employees who move on as soon as their training is complete due to boring and monotonous workloads, means you are pouring money down the sink. Why keep repeating this pattern?

 

By incorporating an automated system, you cut down on the HR hours, the costs associated with onboarding and off-boarding staff, uniform and medical coverage – the list goes on.

We understand that the idea of overhauling your workplace practices is daunting, but surely it is time to recognise the need for efficiency and seek out the opportunity of building automation solutions from the ground up.

 

Here at ACS, we challenge you to identify areas of missed opportunities for automation. Ask yourself, how much time does your organisation spend recruiting and training staff before they get on the work floor?

 

Look around at others in your industry. What processes have they employed to increase efficiency and streamline production? We’re guessing they have automated systems in place. If you can ascertain what procedures they have automated, you can jump on board and become competitive once again.

 

Not sure where to start? Consider asking your current staff their opinion. They have hands-on-experience with repetitive tasks and processes and have a clear understanding of how the introduction of automation will free them up to contribute on a higher level.

 

An exciting opportunity now lies before you. Automation gives you the option of programming several different task processes to each machine, allowing it to split its working day around the factory floor.

 

For example, one robotic assistant can perform three different tasks over the day. Cutting, folding then stacking. One machine to do three repetitive and monotonous, unskilled tasks.

This process frees up your employees to work in more satisfying roles, allowing them to upskill and take more pride in their work, boosting their contribution and productivity.

 

It takes potentially dangerous, repetitive and monotonous movements from fragile humans hands, and places them in the safe, study and thoughtfully designed mechanical hands of automation.

 

The question you should ask yourself is, “Why haven’t I automated my systems?”
