The Workforce: Design For Them or Fail at Industry 4.0.
Tuesday, April 9, 2019

ProMat: RoboBusiness Theater
Automation is essential to survival in the Industry 4.0 economy. However, small manufacturers have been challenged by adopting robotics and automation that could substantially improve their processes. The key to helping businesses leverage robotics technology is to make robots fully accessible to the existing workforce. This requires designing solutions with a workforce-first mentality where empathy with the end user is the primary factor for design and engineering decisions. The resulting products solve real problems, make lives easier and enable companies to grow with their existing workforce, leveraging years of invaluable experience, loyalty, and know how.

By giving workers advanced tools they can use, accessible robots empower the workforce instead of replacing them. Companies get the advantages of automation while expanding the capabilities of their valued employees. The company, the workforce, and the economy all benefit together.
