Technology: The changing manufacturing process


Remember Charlie Chaplin's Modern Times, the command given in a loud voice, section five, more speed, four seven ... American comedy film. This is a glimpse of the impact of the Industrial Revolution on people's lives and economic conditions at that time. It was the period from 1760 to 1840 when human labor was receiving mechanical help in various production or manufacturing processes. Innovations were being made and they were succeeding, but the pace of today's industrial development is many times faster than then.
The motto of today's creative process is automation. Today, machines are used to do the same things that humans used to do in the past. The essence of this automation is based on information technology. In order to run the factory efficiently, its various departments are doing different types of work. These include day-to-day work planning, operation of the machine carrying out the work, its maintenance, proper packaging of the completed work/goods and its distribution, etc.
In each case, they have seized it, despite obstacles we can scarcely imagine. "This information is now stored by humans, by machines, by computers, and is made available when needed. The term ‘cloud computing is thus used to refer to the provision of information quickly, at the right time. As the various works in the factory were computerized, the ‘transparency’ of each work increased, the minor errors were noticed and corrected. At the same time, the process of 'analyzing' the information obtained and making various decisions emerged from that analysis. The decision was based on a combination of observations and conclusions. It was possible to produce consistently the same quality. Unexpected changes took place in which the breakdown of the machine should be reported by the machine itself and the alternatives should be suggested by the machine itself.
With the advent of 3D printing, the industrial sector took a turn for the worse. Everything started to happen as one wanted, in less time, at less cost. Today, 40 factories in 40 countries that produce the same product, although geographically diverse, have very similar networks and their different modes of operation, and they can be controlled from anywhere. The Internet of Things is another wonderful thing. The interaction of physical objects, vehicles, home appliances, sensors, and many other things through the Internet and the work they do accordingly; Through this, work will be done in a factory and it will be done by a machine and also delivered to the customer. Only time will tell whether technology will make man's job easier or make him inactive.
