Business Improved by Robots

Dec 16, 2013

​If your business is seeking greater productivity and product quality, consider automating with industrial robots. For many years now, robots have helped to decrease the time and cost to manufacture certain products. This has helped companies save money, increase worker safety, and provide a consistent product quality each time.


Robots reduce the time and cost of car­ry­ing out com­mon busi­ness pro­ce­dures. Robot­ic soft­ware can replace man­u­al trig­gers, which reduces the need for employ­ees. Robot­ic automa­tion is use­ful for indus­tri­al and cler­i­cal process­es. The two dis­tinct robot­ics mar­kets include indus­tri­al and ser­vice. Indus­tri­al robots are typ­i­cal­ly robot­ic arms on assem­bly lines, while ser­vice robots are more humanoid and work in the aca­d­e­m­ic or research community.

It is not con­test­ed that by imple­ment­ing robots, through­put speeds increase. This direct­ly impacts pro­duc­tion pos­i­tive­ly. Robots can work at a con­stant speed with­out the need for breaks, sleep, or vaca­tions, unlike a human work­er. Fur­ther, they pro­duce less mate­r­i­al waste because of their pre­cise and accu­rate move­ments. This demon­strates their val­ue as a busi­ness tool to increase productivity.

Robots also alle­vi­ate some dan­ger­ous con­di­tions for employ­ees. Work­ers can still super­vise the robots, but they no longer are asked to per­form repet­i­tive or haz­ardous tasks because the robots can eas­i­ly do so. This leads to few­er health­care and insur­ance con­cerns for employers.

For years, busi­ness­es have been out­sourc­ing process­es like pay­roll, order pro­cess­ing, and cus­tomer ser­vice. How­ev­er, a new type of out­sourc­ing is in town: busi­ness process as a ser­vice. With BPaaS, the ser­vice provider man­ages the busi­ness process as well as owns and man­ages the sys­tems and appli­ca­tions that enable that process. Auto­mat­ed work­flow and col­lab­o­ra­tion sys­tems are at the heart of BPaaS. BPaaS solu­tions occur when the provider owns the tech­nol­o­gy plat­forms under­ly­ing the busi­ness process as well as a smart robot. 

While some com­pa­nies may be resis­tant to automat­ing their busi­ness process­es, they must real­ize that cer­tain employ­ees and depart­ments are becom­ing obso­lete as process­es change. This is inher­ent­ly the point of robot­ic automa­tion: mov­ing for­ward to increase prof­itabil­i­ty and efficiency.

It seems that all major busi­ness­es evolve into robot­ics. In Decem­ber 2013, Google entered the robot­ics busi­ness, mak­ing sev­en acqui­si­tions but stay­ing silent about their plans for their new robot­ics division.

Future appli­ca­tions of robot­ic tech­nol­o­gy will include unmanned air vehi­cles. The agri­cul­ture indus­try will sig­nif­i­cant­ly ben­e­fit from these robots, since they can help farm­ers mon­i­tor crops and dis­trib­ute pes­ti­cides more accu­rate­ly. This would increase effi­cien­cy while decreas­ing envi­ron­men­tal impact.
