Automated production
Automatic production system operates in the factory on physical products. They carry out activities such as handling, assembly, inspection or material handling, in some cases completing more than one of these activities in the same system.

1. Increase labor productivity
Automating a production operation often increases production rates and labor productivity. This means greater output per hour of labor input.

2. To reduce labor costs
Increasing labor costs have been and continue to be a trend in industrialized societies around the world. As a result, higher investments in automation have become economically sound to replace manual operations.

3. To minimize the effects of labor shortage
There is a general shortage of labor in some countries, and this has stimulated the development of auto-substitution activities for workers.

4. To reduce or eliminate manual and conventional chores
One argument can be made that there is social value in automating routine activities, which are boring, tiring and can be uncomfortable. Automating such tasks serves the purpose of improving the overall level of working conditions.

5. Improve labor safety
By automating a certain activity and transferring workers from active participation in the process to a supervisory role, the work is made safer. The safety and physical well-being of workers became a national goal with the enactment of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) of 1970. This provided a driving force for automation.

6. To improve product quality
Automation not only results in a higher production rate than manual operations. It also implements the manufacturing process with higher homogeneity and in accordance with quality specifications. Reducing the proportion of fractional defects is one of the main benefits of automation.

7. To reduce production time
Automation helps reduce the time elapsed between customer orders and product delivery, providing a competitive advantage for manufacturers for future orders. By reducing production time, manufacturers also reduce inventories during work.

8. To execute processes cannot be performed manually
Some operations cannot be performed without the aid of machines. These procedures have requirements for accuracy, scaling or complexity of geometry, which cannot be achieved manually.

9. To avoid the high cost of not automating
There is a significant competitive advantage gained in automating a production plant. The advantage cannot easily be shown on the company's project authorization form.
